Ad Urges Rep. Spanberger To Call For Ilhan Omar’s Removal From Foreign Affairs Committee

WASHINGTON – Today, the American Action Network is launching a new digital ad campaign calling on Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) to stand up to hate and demand Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The new ads come as the first stage of a six-figure campaign encouraging members to do the right thing after Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic remarks.

“This is a matter of right and wrong,” said Dan Conston, AAN President. “Ilhan Omar is an anti-Semite and it is time for Abigail Spanberger to take action against her hatred. Omar should not be on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee and Representative Spanberger needs to step up and support her removal.”

The campaign also includes ads that will run in the districts of Representatives Dean Philips (D-MN), Haley Stevens (D-MI) and Tom Malinowski (D-NJ).

You can watch the ad here.


VO: Representative Ilhan Omar keeps hurling anti-Semitic slurs.

The latest? That Jews aren’t loyal to America.

And what’s Congresswoman Abigial Spanberger doing about it? Barely anything.

Ilhan Omar is still on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee.


And Congresswoman Abigial Spanberger won’t call for her removal.

Call Congresswoman Spanberger.

Tell her to support removing Ilhan Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

It’s time to stand up to hate.
