"Ilhan Omar went from being a Somalian refugee to a fearless Congresswoman on the hill, and has demonstrated that she is willing to learn", she continued.

It's typcally hard to replace an incumbent politician, even one as arguably polarizing as Omar, who in her first two months as a congresswoman has sparked contentious debates both as a country and within the party.

Democratic Presidential candidate US Sen.

"There's definitely some buzz going around about it, but it's more a buzz of "is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her" than it is anyone saying they're going to run against her or contemplate it", said state Sen. Bobby Joe Champion and Minneapolis City Councilwoman Andrea Jankins. Ron Latz, a representative from Omar's district.

"However, Samantha Bee was left less than impressed with their behavior, arguing that Democrats such as Pelosi are willing to use Omar to show off a progressive image but "threw her under the bus" when she tried to discuss a "truly hard topic".

Since being sworn in in January, Omar has accused some of her fellow lawmakers of dual loyalty, or "allegiance to a foreign country", due to their support for Israel.

The House passed a broad anti-hate resolution in response, though it didn't name Omar directly.

It was not the first time Omar had been criticized for imputing that Israel's most vocal American backers had been in some way compromised by their support for the state, leading to Democratic infighting over how to respond.

"When I talk about places like Saudi Arabia or Israel or even now with Venezuela, I'm not criticizing the people", Omar said in a recent appearance on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah."

"I'd be pretty uncomfortable supporting Rep. Omar right now, given what I've learned about her since the election and given her apparent inability to stop insulting Jews", he said.
