House Dems delay vote on resolution rebuking Omar over Israel remarks

House Democratic leaders are delaying a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism that had been slated to take place on Wednesday, according to a Democratic aide.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) announced in a closed-door leadership meeting that a vote on the resolution is more likely to occur Thursday instead of the initially expected Wednesday, the aide confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday. They also said that the resolution would be updated to include a nod to anti-Muslim bias.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told reporters that the resolution should emphasize an “anti-hate” message.

Clyburn told Fox News Tuesday evening they were “still drafting” the resolution, but feels it should be “anti-hate.” The measure is expected to be updated to include language condemning anti-Muslim bias.
The resolution comes in the wake of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) most recent controversial comments on Israel.
