Freshman Rep. Illhan Omar (D-Minn.) responded Thursday to a group of Republican congressional candidates who have formed a "Conservative Squad" to rival "The Squad," a group comprised of Omar and other progressive Democrats, including Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," Omar tweeted Thursday. Inside her tweet, the progressive congresswoman had embedded a tweet from Justice Democrats, the political advocacy group that helped Ocasio-Cortez get elected.
The group had tweeted out a video of the "Conservative Squad," which was formed by Alabama congressional candidate Jessica Taylor.
