Liberal political action group TakeAction Minnesota has endorsed candidates in two legislative races that hold DFL primaries Tuesday:
In Senate District 59, they voted to support Mohamud Noor, who, if elected would be the state’s first Somali-American legislator. Also running in the DFL primary in that race are: Kari Dziedzic, Jacob Frey, Paul Ostrow and Peter Wagenius.
In House District 61B, the group endorsed Susan Allen, who would be the first American Indian woman in the Legislature, if she wins. She also has the DFL party endorsement.
Said Dan McGrath, TakeAction Minnesota’s executive director:
“Noor and Allen are exactly the kind of leaders we need to help guide our state as it continues to diversify and works to overcome some really significant economic and racial disparities.”
