Democrat Rashida Tlaib Dances with Palestinian Flag at Victory Party

"I can not wait to serve with you, inshallah", Omar, who also won her election, said on Twitter.

Palestinian-American Rashida Tlaib was another Muslim woman elected to the US Congress.

"This is someone who has cozied up to white nationalists... we should recognize him as what he is and more the conversation beyond him, beyond this divisiveness and to a place of hope, inclusion", Omar added.

Although her election was officially announced on Tuesday, she was elected unopposed as no one came forward to challenge Rashida in another deeply Democratic district.

Another Muslim woman, Ilhan Omar, who is running in Minnesota's 5th District, is also expected to win.

In February, Omar spoke openly about what she saw as the president's prejudice against Muslims, saying there is no debate about "whether Trump is a racist". She spent four years in Dadaab until her family was cleared to emigrate to the US. That was won by Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, who's poised to serve as a congresswoman for the rest of the year, though she may have to resign from the Detroit position to do so.

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

Tlaib is endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America, a burgeoning left-wing group that also counts New York Democratic congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez among its members.
