Ilhan Omar Narrowly Survives Democratic Primary in Minnesota
Star Tribune via GettyIt was closer than she wanted, but progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) narrowly defeated centrist Minneapolis City Council member Don Samuels in their primary matchup Tuesday night, winning on a margin that indicates a much shakier standing in her Minneapolis district than most expected.

Samuels ran largely on backlash to Omar's leftist positions, including her support for defunding the police, which has become a hot-button issue in Minneapolis since the murder of George Floyd in 2020. The congresswoman is one of the most liberal members of the House Democratic Caucus, and she has occasionally bucked the party on major policy votes alongside the rest of the so-called progressive "squad."

Although he ultimately lost, Samuels' candidacy appears to have struck a chord with some voters' distaste for Omar's progressive approach. At the point the AP called her race, she was only about 2 percentage points ahead.

Ukraine Claims Responsibility for Massive Blasts at Russian Base in Crimea Despite Kremlin's Story
Rob Lee TwitterQuestions have been raised about the Kremlin's version of events after several massive explosions were seen erupting from a Russian military airbase in Crimea on Tuesday.

Videos of the blasts at the Saki base on the Russian-controlled peninsula were shared on social media. In a statement, the Russian defense ministry said the explosions had been caused as a result of aviation munitions detonating, though no explanation was given as to what had caused the ordnance to explode. They also claimed that there were no casualties as a result of the explosions, nor was there any damage to aviation hardware at the site. "Measures are being taken to extinguish the fire and find out the causes of the explosion," the ministry added, Russian state media reported. "According to a report from the site, there was no fire impact on the bunded ammunition storage area at the airfield."

Despite the Kremlin's denials, a contradictory narrative quickly emerged. An unnamed Ukrainian military official told the New York Times that Ukrainian forces were indeed behind the blasts. "This was an air base from which planes regularly took off for attacks against our forces in the southern theater," the source said, adding that a "device exclusively of Ukrainian manufacture was used" in the attack.
