MINNESOTA – America’s first Somali-American legislator, Ilhan Omar (D), won the Minnesota Democratic primary on Tuesday night, becoming more likely to make history as one of the first Muslim women in Congress.

“We started this campaign to prove people are ready and willing to fight for an America that works for all of us. To every staff member, volunteer, donor, and voter, this win is just as much yours as it is mine,” Omar said in a tweet shortly after declaring victory, CNN reported.

“Together, we will move our district, state, and nation forward.”

Omar, who entered a race against a pack of five other candidates to fill current Rep. Keith Ellison’s seat, won 48 percent of Tuesday’s primary vote.

Ellison, who was the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, decided to run for Minnesota attorney general rather than return to Congress...
