In 1972, Phyllis Kahn made history when she was elected state representative as part of a feminist wave that put an end to what had been a male monopoly in the Minnesota Legislature. Four decades later, two challengers are seeking to make some history of their own. Community leaders Mohamud Noor and Ilhan Omar, both DFLers, are also running for the 60B seat. If elected, one of them would become Minnesota’s first Somali legislator. 

 A conversation with Representative Phyllis Kahn and challengers Ilhan Omar and Mohamud Noor (invited) on TruthtoTell, Monday morning, January 11, 9-10, KFAI Radio, 90.3 Minneapolis or 106.7 St. Paul.  You can live stream at www.kfai.org or catch it later on the KFAI archive.  Click ON DEMAND and search for TruthtoTell.
