Ilhan Omar says Sanders could’ve beaten Biden if Warren had dropped out

Rep. Ilhan Omar suggested that Sen. Bernie Sanders could have beaten Joe Biden on Super Tuesday if Sen. Elizabeth Warren had dropped out of the race.

“Imagine if the progressives consolidated last night like the moderates consolidated, who would have won?” the Minnesota congresswoman said on Twitter late Tuesday.

“That’s what we should be analyzing. I feel confident a united progressive movement would have allowed for us to #BuildTogether and win MN and other states we narrowly lost,” she continued.

Biden swept the Super Tuesday contests with wins in Texas and Virginia, to name a few.

States where Biden was expected to trail Sanders (I-Vt.) considerably, including Minnesota and Massachusetts, ended up being surprise victories for the comeback candidate.

Warren, meanwhile, underperformed her campaign’s expectations on Tuesday.

The results showed a stark contrast to the campaign’s projected Super Tuesday numbers. Warren campaign manager Roger Lau wrote in a campaign memo last month that the team expected Warren to pick up delegates in all but one state during the major day of primary contests.

On Wednesday, a campaign aide for the Massachusetts senator told The Post, “Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward.”

Omar (D-Minn.) endorsed Sanders late last year along with two other members of “The Squad.”
