US pro-Israel group raises $400,000 to boost Ilhan Omar’s primary challenger
A pro-Israel group has raised nearly $400,000 to target Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and boost her primary challenger in an election next month.
Pro-Israel America, which bolsters Congressional candidates who are traditionally supportive of the Jewish state, announced Wednesday that it has funneled $397,000 into Antone Melton-Meaux’s 2020 campaign.
The contest has already seen more than $10 million in campaign spending, a surge in volunteer activity and negative attacks from both sides.
As of this writing, Omar has outraised her opponent by more than $126,000, and has outspent him by more than $1 million, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Pro-Israel America’s cash injection into the race comes as some pro-Israel groups are trying to remove the freshman congresswoman from office.
The political action committee NORPAC, a New York City-area group that supports pro-Israel candidates, has also pumped $106,000 into Melton-Meax’s campaign.
Pro-Israel America, which was established in March 2019, is run by former staffers of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
