Rep. Ilhan Omar faces a re-election challenge from Chris Kelley, a celebrated Iraq war veteran.
Well, not only did Ilhan Omar’s whole “some people did something” comment succeed in igniting a huge firestorm of controversy, but it also led to something great: a challenge to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s re-election bid.
Impressive resume! We need to go back to the patriotism we had back when Americans stood up for our flag and values. Thank you for your service, sir, you are an inspiration.
Alright, Minnesotans here’s your opportunity to right a major wrong… Send this man to Washington! He has the credentials that will help lead Minnesota. Ilhan Omar does not.
Ok Minnesota, here’s a guy who wants to help the country instead of hating it & using it for fame..

When Rep. Ilhan Omar ignited steep controversy in March describing the September 11 attacks as “some people did something,” it was then that a longtime cop in her neighborhood decided he needed to do more than just bemoan what he perceived as a shocking trivialization of a terrorist attack that tore through the fabric of his beloved country.
Now, Chris Kelley, who has collected eleven military medals as a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Army and Army Reserves and clocked more than 36,000 hours patrolling the Minnesota streets as a 20-year veteran of the Minneapolis Police Force, has his sights set on knocking Omar from her seat representing Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District in 2020.
“September 11 was a terrible loss of life, not just for police officers and firefighters and other first responders, but 3,000 people and non-combatants died, and to be dismissive of that was an outrage. I could sit and complain or I could do something about it,” Kelley, who is campaigning as an Independent, told Fox News. “And I believe I can be a positive voice in standing up for people in our country, and for our first responders and the people every day on the frontlines.” More
Thank you for your service and your continued commitment to helping others. Chris Kelley will make a great congressman and represent Minnesota in an honorable way.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
