‘It’s personal to me’: Iraqi refugee Dalia al-Aqidi is running for Congress against Ilhan Omar with a powerful, pro-American message [video]
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar frequently cites her background as a refugee to attempt to shield herself from criticism. Wonder what she’ll have to say about Iraqi refugee — and Republican —Dalia al-Aqidi, who’s running for Congress against her:
It's time to defend America! I'm running for Congress because we're not as divided as Ilhan Omar and the far-left would have us believe. I'm running to bring us closer together. https://t.co/sa9dsHHTeO

Al-Aqidi has a powerful story and an important message: unlike Ilhan Omar, who frequently hides behind her background to trash America, al-Aqidi’s background has helped her to appreciate what makes this country so exceptional.

This ad is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Please let me know if I can help in any way. I don’t live in MN but as a Jew this one is personal to me. Omar must go.

Thank you! I just saw your campaign video. You’re love for America is so amazing and shines through these days of angry publicity hungry radicals. I cant vote but I will be following your campaign with interest. All the best!

If anyone deserves to be sent packing, it’s Ilhan Omar. Will al-Aqidi be the one to do it? Stay tuned.
