Ilhan Omar is a young Somali woman who is running for State Representative of Minnesota.
- 32 yrs old mother of three and wife to a Somali Facebook celebrity.
- DFL activist, DFL Senate District 60 Associate Chair, co-founder of the New Americans political-action committee, and senior policy aide to Minneapolis City Council Member Andrew Johnson (Ward 12)
- A Progressive Candidate.
- Anti-Abdi Warsame. She got knocked out at a caucus (left with a bloody nose and lip and was later diagnosed with concussion and a sprained neck by emergency services) and blamed Abdi Warsame's relatives. She claimed she was continuously threatened, blamed and scapegoated since the caucus by supporters and relatives of Warsame. She claims she was attacked because she was a woman.
- An intersectional feminist and support of the #Blacklivesmatter campaign.
It seems like she doesn't have a lot of support/respect in the Somali community but she's well connected and just might go the distance.
