Tlaib, a single mother and the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, was also the first Muslim woman to be elected to Michigan's Legislature, where she served from 2008 to 2014. Multiple outlets have called the race.

The Democrat lived at the Daad refugee camp in Kenya for four years and could not even speak English at the time she relocated to the US. "Yes, you're going to have to learn how to say our names", she is quoted by HuffPost.

As of 9:46 p.m. on November 6, media outlets have also declared Andy Levin, Debbie Dingell, and Brenda Lawrence winners in their respective U.S. House races.

Omar was one of two Muslim women to win an election in Tuesday's midterms.
