A political—and familial—mystery swirls around a Somali-American’s “historic” candidacy for Minnesota’s state legislature.

In early August, 33-year-old Ilhan Omar became an overnight sensation in Minnesota politics. Her primary victory over 22-term incumbent Phyllis Kahn secured the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (DFL) endorsement of Omar’s candidacy to represent House District 60B in the state legislature. Minneapolis’s Star Tribune trumpeted Omar’s victory in a huge headline on its front page, proclaiming that the Somali immigrant’s victory had “made history.” The paper followed up with two more retrospective stories admiring Omar’s triumph.

    Those Land o’ Lakers sure have strange tastes in their politicians. Must be something in the water.

      Just Somali Muslims voting for their own kind.
      She could have been in a coma and they would have elected her over any white.

    There is nothing more pathetic than the desperation of the media to give a Gold Star to a Mohammedan, any Mohammedan.

    Hillary referred to explosive vests as “strap-on bombs.” The jokes write themselves.

    Phyllis Kahn once introduced a bill to repeal the ban on first-cousin marriage so that she could curry favour with the Somali community.
