Rep. Keith Ellison announced this week that he’s running for attorney general of Minnesota, and already six candidates have jumped in to replace him in Congress. Among them is intersectional feminist and state Rep. Ilhan Omar, and an old tweet of hers from 2012 that resurfaced this week suggested she might slip easily into Ellison’s role.

If she weren’t a Democrat, a tweet like that might prove … problematic.

Will the media pick up on this blatant anti-semitism? https://t.co/QzvZrHAEfV

Every Democrat running for office should be asked about this. Again and again.

A frontrunner for Rep. Ellison's seat seems to share his perspective on one issue, at least.https://t.co/HzEGkdsaGw

This person is running for congress in the United States as a Democrat. Accusing Jews of "hypnotizing the masses" is an antisemitic trope that dates back hundreds of years and was used by the Nazis.
What is the difference between her and Paul Nehlen or Patrick Little? https://t.co/5K8HENEuiF

Here’s an interesting development:
It is truly an honor to receive Governor Mark Dayton’s endorsement!

“I know that she will champion progressive Minnesota values in Congress” — yeah, see, that’s the problem.
'This is RICH'! Who buys Keith Ellison's spin on his relationship with Louis Farrakhan? https://t.co/BzqQ4enHGX
