#IlhanOmar (@IlhanMN) will be the first woman of color to represent #Minnesota in Congress and among the first Muslim women—along with @RashidaTlaib —to join the United States Congress. #ElectionNight

#ElectionNight 2018 is a historic occasion. Rashida Tlaib (left) & Ilhan Omar (right) are officially the first two Muslim women in U.S. history to be elected to Congress. These powerful women are now etched into the history books. More power to them! Absolutely brilliant.

The best story on #ElectionNight is that of Ilhan Omar. She is a former African refugee from Somalia and one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress. She is now serving the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota. What an improbable journey. Historic.
