First-term congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota stated in a recent podcast that it would take something “tragic” to happen before fellow Democrats would nominate Joseph R. Biden for president, according to The Washington Times. During a podcast interview with The Intercept, Omar answered questions surrounding both her and her party’s choice for representation as the next president representing their party.
“So, if something tragic happened and I had to choose between Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, I can’t say either,” stated Omar during the interview. It has been no secret that Omar has endorsed Sen. Bernard Sanders, a Vermont Independent, as her personal choice for a Democratic presidential candidate. Thus far in the polls, Warren is ahead in popularity with Buttigieg in second place, and both Biden and Sanders trailing behind.
