All rational Americans in Minnesota (not just Republicans) must get behind Lacy Johnson in a big way. The pro-jihad Rep. Ilhan Omar must be defeated in November. Make it happen.
And I’m Endorsing you also Lacy, you truly deserve it. You are doing a great job, and Omar is a disaster who wants much higher taxes, hates our Military & our Vets, demands Open Borders, and is fighting to take away our great 2nd Amendment. Good luck Lacy! https://t.co/RunIPCbTyc

Lacy Johnson, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s GOP challenger, gets Trump backing
By Star Tribune, May 5, 2020
President Donald Trump tweeted support on Monday for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Republican challenger, Lacy Johnson.
“And I’m endorsing you also Lacy, you truly deserve it,” Trump wrote as he retweeted a posting from Johnson two days earlier in which he introduced himself to potential supporters and touted last week’s Republican endorsement for his bid.
Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District GOP gave Johnson its endorsement last week. A businessman, Johnson has raised a surprising $1.1 million in his bid to unseat Omar. Trump’s online support is likely to be another fundraising boost.The Minneapolis-centered, heavily Democratic Fifth District has not elected a Republican to Congress since the 1960s. In 2018, Omar defeated her Republican opponent with 78% of the vote.
Trump has been a regular critic of Omar, who last year became one of the first two Muslim women to join the U.S. Congress. In his tweet on Monday, he called her “a disaster.” Omar in turn has frequently pushed back at Trump and his policies.
