September 11 was just the beginning of their jihad.
In this historic election year, 49% of eligible voters voted in the first midterm election ever to have more than 100 million voters. We haven’t had a turnout percent this high since 1966, and you’d have to look all the way back to 1914 to find an election with more than 50% participation. With some votes in GA, TX, and FL still being counted there’s a chance this election will break that record.
It was a record year for Muslim involvement, too. Jetpac has confirmed at least 128 American Muslims ran for office in this cycle. Numbers haven’t been that high since 2000, when about 700 Muslims ran, and 153 were elected. Jetpac is working on a full report to be released next week, in partnership with CAIR.
Below, we’ve broken down the campaigns of American Muslims across the country at the Federal/Statewide, State Legislative, County, Judiciary, and Municipal levels. Click the links to jump to those sections.
We’ve pulled this information from a number of sources—let us know if we’ve made a mistake, or forgotten to add anyone. We’ll be updating the list as we get more results.
Federal and Statewide Races
|Agha Khan (R)||NJ 10th Congressional District||LOST|
|Andre Carson (D)||IN 7th Congressional District||WON|
|Ilhan Omar (D)||MN 5th Congressional District||WON|
|Keith Ellison (D)||MN Attorney General||WON|
|Omar Qudrat (R)||CA 52nd Congressional District||LOST|
|Rashida Tlaib (D)||MI 13th Congressional District||WON|
|Mahmoud Mahmoud (NWF)||NJ 8th Congressional District||LOST|
Of the above wins, we have a lot of firsts for American Muslims: Rashida Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, Ilhan Omar will be the first Somali woman, and—without getting into the exact times their races were called—they’re both the first American Muslim women to be elected as members of the House of Representatives. Keith Ellison will be the first American Muslim State Attorney General, and the first American Muslim elected to statewide office.
State Legislative Races
While we didn’t get all the wins we wanted, it can’t be stressed enough that each and every one of these candidates had a victory—regardless of the numbers that came in yesterday. These are our community leaders, and they fought so hard for their voices to be heard. Congratulations to each and every one of you.
Quick note: Amir Malik’s race in MN’s 37B District is within 100 votes. While the unofficial results are predicting a win for his opponent, it’s still very close.
