During an interview with Axios, Rep. Ilhan Omar stated that if Joe Biden were to win the presidential election, he will need to have progressives in his camp in and will need to enact policies that the far-left want.

“We know at every single exit poll, you know, Medicare For All was 60%, 70%, 80% in some places throughout the primary,” she claimed. “And, you know, those were not only the places where Bernie was leading, they were places where Joe was leading, and so that should signal to Joe Biden that these people trusted me to lead, but these were the policies that they want me to lead on and, you know, act accordingly.”
