Ilhan Omar talked to "The View" Wednesday after winning Minnesota's 5th District race.
Omar is the first Somali-American and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
Omar will succeed U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, who gave up the safe seat in a heavily Democratic Minneapolis-area district to run for state attorney general. Ellison himself was the first Muslim elected to Congress more than a decade ago.
Omar defeated Republican activist Jennifer Zielinski.
