Congressman Keith Ellison Endorses DFL Endorsed Abdi Warsame and Congratulated his Campaign Team

Written by Abdi-Qudus Salah

Minneapolis (SPR): Candidate for Minneapolis City Council Abdi Warsame announced the endorsement of Keith Ellison, the first Muslim and African American Congressman from the state of Minnesota. Keith Ellison is the U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 5th congressional district, serving since 2007. He is a member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, the Minnesota state Democratic Party affiliate. The district centers on Minneapolis and surrounding suburbs. Ellison is a co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Chief Deputy Whip for the 113th Congress.

“I am honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of Congressman Keith Ellison,” said Abdi Warsame. “Congressman Keith Ellison has shown years of leadership in our community, and I am very proud to count on him as a friend and a supporter as I move forward in this race.”

The list of elected officials endorsing Abdi Warsame includes:

-          Congressman Keith Ellison of 5th Congressional District
-          State Representative Phyllis Kahn of district 60B
-          State Senator Kari Dziedzic District 60
            State Senator Jeff Hyden District 62
-          Park Board Commissioner At Large and Board President John Erwin
-          Park Board Commissioner for District 3 Scott Vreeland
 
      The endorsements from elected officials across the state of Minnesota reflect a growing momentum for the Warsame campaign. Mr. Warsame made history few months ago by becoming the first major party endorsed in the United States from Somalia. To date the campaign has raised funds, demonstrated unprecedented outreach efforts and penned a platform that resonates with Minneapolis’s Ward 6 residents.

Here’s what some of the endorsers had to say about Abdi Warsame:

State Representative Phyllis Kahn of district 60B

                “The new 6th Ward has the chance to elect an incredibly talented Council Member in Abdi Warsame. Abdi is a grassroots activist in the Paul Wellstone tradition. It’s time that the Minneapolis City Council truly reflects the 21st Century demographics of our city.”

Park Commissioner President John Erwin and Park Board Commissioner for District 3 Scott Vreeland

                “We support Abdi Warsame because he is committed to working with the Park Board to maximize the full Human potential of every Child and adult in the city. We will work as a team to see park services delivered throughout the 6th Ward.”
