Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar said she is supporting Biden in the 2020 election because she believes he is “going to be responsive to the policy positions we are advocating for.”
Omar said she represents one of the most progressive districts in Minneapolis and the voters she serves in Congress want a president who is willing to advance their policy agenda.
“What most of the progressives that I represent feel like is that this is our time to make sure we get rid of Trump, and we elect someone who’s going to be responsive to the policy positions we are advocating for,” Omar told MSNBC in an interview on Sunday.
“Biden’s economic package is one that gets us a step closer to addressing the economic and social neglects that have went unaddressed for so long,” said Omar, a member of the progressive “Squad,” with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
