Multiple outlets have called the race.

Democrat Ilhan Omar holds up a newspaper after she was interviewed by The Associated Press Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in Minneapolis after winning Minnesota's 5th Congressional District race in Tuesday's election.

Omar, a Somali-American was once a refugee, while Tlaib is the first Pakistani-American woman in congress. "If they tell you who they are, believe them the first time", she said.

You need to inundate and immerse yourself by sparring this way and I think that's what Tony Bellew has done. Even though Bellew eventually won, it shows you that he can be hurt, he can be dropped by a southpaw .

Among those elected was Somali-American, Ilhan Omar, who easily won the election in Minnesota district becoming one of the first Muslim women elected to US Congress, .

As of 9:46 p.m. on November 6, media outlets have also declared Andy Levin, Debbie Dingell, and Brenda Lawrence winners in their respective U.S. House races.

Congresswoman Karen Bass, projected to win a fifth term in Tuesday's United States midterm elections, has visited Kenya twice in recent years. "I'm Muslim and Black and was coming from a Muslim-majority country where everyone was Black", she said.

Democrats Already Ready to Demand Trump's Tax Returns
Trump spent election night watching returns with family and friends at the White House, his shadow looming large over the results. The GOP Senate victory was magnified because Democrats stood a solid chance of wresting control of the House from Republicans.

Republicans who charge that the Democratic Party has departed from its pro-Israel bona fides point to Tlaib and Omar as proof.

She was born on July 24, 1976, to working-class Palestinian immigrants in Detroit and is the eldest of 14 children.

The Palestinian-American won the Democrat primary for the seat in August with around a third of the total vote share. After the start of the civil war in 1991, she and her family fled Somalia and spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya.
