Press Release

RELEASE: Rep. Ilhan Omar Statement on Governor Daytonís Senate Appointment

SAINT PAUL, MINN – Today, Governor Mark Dayton today announced that he will appoint Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith to serve as United States Senator for Minnesota.

Minnesota State Representative Ilhan Omar (DFL-Minneapolis) released the following statement:

“Tina Smith is a friend to all Minnesotans, and I know she will take on the important fights for us in Washington, DC. Throughout my time in the legislature, I’ve known Tina Smith to be accessible and motivated to learn the issues facing Minnesotans of every age, race, religion, gender and ethnicity. Tina Smith will be a strong advocate for women, for immigrant and refugee families who are feeling extremely threatened in the current political climate, and she believes that every person deserves to see the economic benefits of a strong economy that works for everyone. With Tina in the United States Senate, I’m hopeful she can help create a nation that works better for everyone and keeps the promise of liberty and justice for all.”
