Rep. Ilhan Omar wins DFL endorsement over Don Samuels at Minneapolis convention

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar won the DFL's stamp of approval during an endorsing convention in Minneapolis on Saturday, giving her the party's backing as she heads into a highly anticipated primary election rematch against Don Samuels.

Omar's voice broke with emotion Saturday afternoon as she thanked convention goers for supporting her. The Minneapolis congresswoman won the DFL endorsement on the first ballot of voting, the first time she's ever done so.

"It tells me that we should stop listening to the naysayers that talk about the silent majority and listen to the loud majority," Omar said. "We have a lot of work to do to win the primary in August, and I know that we are going to do it."
