Representative Ilhan Omar joined Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire on Friday for what is the largest rally in the Granite State so far this primary season.
Addressing the crowd of more than 1300 in Nashua, Omar shot down suggestions that the Vermont Senator’s policies are radical.
“Being radical means you believe in the idea that politics can be a vehicle of bringing joy into people’s lives,” Omar said.
Following Omar’s remarks, Sanders praised the Minnesota representative, who is often the subject of attacks from President Trump.
“She has stood up to some of the most ugly racism ever thrown at a member of the United States Congress,” Sanders said.
