Historic vote for Muslim women in USA elections

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are set to become the first Muslim women elected to the US Congress

"If they tell you who they are, believe them the first time", she said. With many firsts behind my name.

Georgia governor's race candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, was in a fierce battle to become America's first black woman governor, and Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum was bidding to become the first black governor of Florida. The first woman to wear a hijab. She used that record of taking on corporate interests and defending local priorities as part of her campaign for election as a congressional representative.

Omar, who came to the US as a refugee, has championed left-leaning policies, including Medicare for all, a US$15 minimum wage and abolishing US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She could not speak English and only learnt by watching television.

Abdiaziz Dhoore, 35, who attended Omar's election night event, said Tuesday's results will help fight President Donald Trump's "bullying toward immigrants".

Both women ran unopposed in their districts after winning this summer's Democratic primaries and the Republican Party failed to put forward candidates.

Tuesday's elections made history, with an unprecedented number of minorities and women running for office.

However, they stayed not in the Royal Palace, and Anmer hall - located near the Norfolk residence of Kate and William. Something tells us the Duchess of Sussex won't get dinged for this slight departure from tradition, though.

The victory of Palestinian-American Talib, 42, was no surprise.

In a quirk, a special election for the MI seat was also held in August.

She praised what initially appeared to be a peaceful, credible exercise in democratic decision- making, saluting the large numbers of Kenyans who waited patiently to cast their ballots. She spent four years in Dadaab until her family was cleared to emigrate to the US.

Now Congresswoman-elect Omar is talking about taking on President Trump, including at a University of Minnesota Humphrey School forum. "Congress will make sure we get humanitarian assistance to where we need it most".

Meanwhile in the Senate - the upper chamber of Congress - it looks likely the Republican Party will hold a majority with 51 seats against the Democrats' 43.
