IF THE SOMALI "activists" can get rid of Kahn,[ she has been in the state legislature since 1972] well then I think they have done a great service for the community.

Im sorry but there really seems to be a severe conflict of interest when professional translators are needed in the democratic election process somewhere in this country. I'm guessing the terms "melting pot" and "assimilation" never came up during this event. Going to Howard zinn for your american history is basically like going to al gore to learn meteorology or dr. Seuss for a geography lesson.

Rep. Kahn is still doing a good job. Why should she lose it? She has the stature, the seniority, the clout and the guts to fight for what is right and good for her district. Why throw away everything that she has built instead of using it for the good of the district? She can do way more and she should keep doing it.

While Noor got a lot of delegates in this precinct and one other, I think that Kahn got the lion's share of the other nine precincts. Come the convention, I don't think that she'll have any trouble getting the endorsement. But, is Noor going to abide by the endorsement or take on Kahn in the primary? I haven't heard anything about what Noor's position is on that. If he does, I think that he'll have a limited future in the DFL party.

This is what happens when you rig redistricting so Somalis can vote in greater numbers. They will throw non-Somali democrats under the bus and try to seize as much power as they can. You can see this happening already. Guess one of the democrats' favorite 'voting blocks' can no longer be trusted. Way to go, dems. This is only the beginning. And is this really America when 'translators' have to be brought in? So much for assimilation.

For those of you wanting Kahn to be replaced by Noor. Be real careful of what you wish for because you just might get it, and then you'll have to live with it. Just as in the first raucous caucus get together and the City Council caucus, where Lilligren was dumped,Chaos will Reign!

Given that the Somali population will quadruple in the next couple of years given their belief in large families (5+ children) and more family immigration provided by the missionary Lutherans, I would not be surprised in the next couple of that they boot out non-Somali DFL candidates out of state political offices...

As long as Noor doesn't have a history that includes stealing campaign signs or says "What is a punch?" to a woman who was punched in the previous caucus, I see him clearly as a victor from his character only. Kahn is a nightmare for herself, please don't do any more interviews otherwise we will see you forced to resign before your term is up.

So this is the choice that's given to voters by the caucus process? It would be laughable if it wasn't so serious.

Rep Kahn brags about her help in turning our ward into the Somali ward. I dont like the gerrymandering that was done to push Council Member Lilligren out of office. Now she is surprised that the Somalis want her job next?
