Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar and Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib became the first Muslim women elected into Congress on Tuesday.

But the pair made other strides as well — Omar became the first Somali-American elected into Congress, and Tlaib became the first Palestinian-American elected into Congress.

Omar's political rise started in 2019, when she unseated a 44-year incumbent in a Democratic primary on her way to winning a seat on the Minnesota Legislature, according to The Associated Press.

In Tuesday's election, she took the seat of a Minneapolis-area congressional district being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison.

Tlaib, meanwhile, was elected to Michigan's 13th House District seat long held by Rep. John Conyers, who stepped down last year amid reports of sexual misconduct.

She campaigned on a platform of defending Detroit's poor, and accused refineries and a trucking magnate of polluting city neighborhoods.
