MINNESOTA — HISTORY was made today in Minnesota. Ilhan Omar, who became the first Somali-American Legislator elected in the US, was sworn in today.
Ilhan Omar defeated 44-years term Representative Phyllis Kahn for Minnesota House District 60B in August. The Somali-born activist unseated one of the Minnesota Legislature’s longest-serving members in Minnesota.
Ilhan Omar became the first Somali-American lawmaker in the nation after the November election.
