Democrat Rashida Tlaib was elected to represent Michigan's 13th House District on Tuesday, defeating three other candidates, including a write-in campaign by Detroit's City Council president, Brenda Jones. "And that if you just believe in the possibility of someone like me", Talib added.
The Palestinian-American Muslim ran under the Democratic Party, having previously served six years in the state legislature. She will succeed the first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, who vacated the seat to run for Minnesota's Attorney General.
Jones lost the Democratic primary for the full term to Tlaib.
"I stand here before you tonight as your congresswoman-elect with many firsts behind my name", she said amid cheers. Minnesota state data showed Omar winning by a large margin, and MI media reported that Tlaib had won.
In the video, Tlaib delivered a victory speech in which she acknowledged her family watching from overseas in the Palestinian Authority-administered West Bank.
