(Learfield News Service) Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders in his bid for the White House, rather than her fellow Minnesotan, Senator Amy Klobuchar.
Omar says Sanders is “leading a working class movement to defeat Donald Trump that transcends generation, ethnicity, and geography” and is the best candidate to take on the president in 2020.
Sanders calls Omar “a leader of strength and courage” who will not back down from a fight.
Omar and President Trump have repeatedly traded political shots verbally and via Twitter.
Her endorsement of Sanders came shortly after the conclusion of last night’s (Tues) fourth Democratic presidential debate.
