DFL endorses Omar for Ellison's congressional seat

State Rep. Ilhan Omar won the DFL Party endorsement on Sunday in the crowded race to fill U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s seat in Congress.

Omar, a first-term state lawmaker from Minneapolis who has quickly gained national media attention as the first Somali-American to serve in a state Legislature, won the three-way endorsement contest after two rounds of voting. She told a cheering crowd of supporters that she is excited to build on the momentum from the party convention as she heads toward a competitive August primary election.
