Omar wins pri­mary

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/WORLD -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — U.S. Rep. Il­han Omar, D-Minn., on Tues­day sur­vived a stiff pri­mary chal­lenge from an op­po­nent who tried to make an is­sue of her na­tional celebrity. Omar, seek­ing her se­cond term in Novem­ber, de­feated An­tone Mel­ton-Meaux, an at­tor­ney who raised mil­lions in anti-Omar money. With 96% of precincts re­port­ing, Omar had 57% of the vote to Mel­ton-Meaux’s 39%.
