AAN Launches Campaign Calling for Removal of Ilhan Omar from Foreign Affairs Committee

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today launched the first stage of a six-figure campaign pushing to remove Ilhan Omar from the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Digital ads will run in four districts, calling on these Members of Congress to support Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) removal: Dean Philips (D-MN), Haley Stevens (D-MI), Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA).

“These members promised voters independent voices in Congress. But, sadly, they have been muted when it comes to calling Ilhan Omar to account for her anti-Semitic tropes. Omar’s anti-Semitism has no place on the Foreign Affairs Committee and they should say so,” said AAN Chairman and former Senator (R-MN) Norm Coleman.

“This is a matter of right and wrong,” said Dan Conston, AAN President. “Ilhan Omar is an anti-Semite and it is time for her colleagues take action. Omar should not be on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee and these members need to step up and support her removal. ”

VO: Representative Ilhan Omar keeps hurling anti-Semitic slurs.

The latest? That Jews aren’t loyal to America.

And what’s Congressman Dean Phillips doing about it? Barely anything.

He hesitated to condemn Omar even though he says she’s one of the party leaders.

And Omar is still on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee.

Inappropriate.

Call Dean Phillips. Tell him to support removing Ilhan Omar from foreign affairs.

It’s time to stand up to the hate.
