Election Results: Ilhan Omar Elected in 5th District

November 06, 2018 09:45 PM

UPDATE 8:37 p.m.

State Rep. Ilhan Omar has won Minnesota’s 5th District race to become the first Somali-American and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.

Omar will succeed U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, who gave up the safe seat in a heavily Democratic Minneapolis-area district to run for state attorney general. Ellison himself was the first Muslim elected to Congress more than a decade ago.

Omar defeated Republican activist Jennifer Zielinski.

Omar says she’ll vote to impeach President Donald Trump if given the chance. She was dogged during the campaign by allegations first raised by conservative media two years ago that she married her brother and committed immigration fraud. She denounced those claims as “disgusting lies.”

UPDATE 8:35 p.m.

The Associated Press is reporting that Ilhan Omar has been declared the winner in the 5th Congressional District race against Jennifer Zielinski.
