Nada Elmikashfi received the endorsement of Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Like Omar, Elmikashfi is a Black Muslim woman who immigrated to the United States from Africa when she was young.
“Our hope for the future is being built on tenacity, compassion, & courage—we’ve seen that hope embodied by Rep. Ilhan Omar,” said Elmikashfi in a tweet on Saturday. “I am honored to announce her endorsement. Rep. Omar has fought for progress in Congress. We will do the same in Wisconsin.”
