It looks like Ilhan Omar might just get a run for her money in the upcoming congressional run by none other than Cicely Davis, who is doing her best to replace the Democratic Representative and “Squad” member.
Davis says that she is focusing on preventing the radical transformation of America, and Minneapolis. Just recently in Minneapolis, the state rejected a new and radical measure that would remove funding from and nearly abolish the state’s police force.
When speaking about this, Davis said the following:
“There was an assumption that because [Ilhan Omar] backed it, and because Keith Ellison backed it and promoted it, that it would go through. And so, I think there was a complacency there, but the people stood up.”
She went on to say, “Just to remind the people, my district is 63% liberal, and so this is the significance of them voting against, at 57% of the voters, voted against saying they wanted more police presence, not less. And so, the reality is, is that progressives have been using this public safety reform as a Trojan horse for the radical transformation of America and the Minneapolis people stood up and said, ‘no’, and that to me is absolutely shocking.”
She then continued, “And so the way to beat her is right now I would need to ride this wave. Again, what happened on election Tuesday so that common sense is finally starting to kick in. I’m having conversations in liberal living rooms is what I’m calling my tour right now.”
Davis also says that the people feel like Omar and other Democrats don’t care about what’s going on at their kitchen tables. The point is that everything costs more and there’s less money per paycheck, which means less money for the things people actually care about.
Davis says that much of her campaign will focus on calming things down in the district she’s running in. Making sure that common sense is in place, but also trying to help people work together and change the narrative for their state. Heaven knows the country needs her and others like her to take on the radical extremists we have running the country right now.
