Sami Scheetz, 26, made history in Tuesday's election in Iowa's House District 78.
Scheetz who is from Cedar Rapids became the first Arab American ever elected to the State Legislature.
He says it's Fitting that he's now serving the district he's elected to.
The oldest Mosque in North America is in my District in Cedar Rapids. There's a hundred-year old Arab Christian church in my District as well, there's been an Arab community that's been vibrant here for over a centruy, and to finally have representation in our State Legislature that reflects that from Cedar Rapids, it's incredible. -- Sami Scheetz, Representative elect of House District 78
