Three Somali-Americans are lacing their boots to contest legislative election in the United States.
The Minnesota trio are gunning for two House of Representative seats and a historic seat in Congress.
The most prominent of them being Ilhan Omar who is left with one hurdle to become the first Somali-American to occupy a seat in the U.S. Congress.
After a gruelling campaign, Ilhan won the Democratic Party’s nomination to contest for Congress in elections slated for November 2018.
Political watchers say she is all set to win the seat of Keith Ellison, current Congressman for Minnesota’s Fifth District.
She previously served as the first Somali-American to be elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2016.
