Ihan Omar Makes History As The First Somali Legislator In The U.S

ihan-omar-500x500Minneapolis organizer, Ihan Omar made history Tuesday when she won a Minnesota House seat and prepared to become the nation’s first Somali-American legislator.

Omar, 34, won House District 60B, which comprises parts of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, southeast Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota. It was represented for decades by DFLer Phyllis Kahn. Omar defeated Kahn in a primary contest and ran virtually unopposed after her Republican opponent suspended his campaign for family reasons.
