The Most Qualified Candidate

The broad and diverse experiences of Jill Abahsain give her the perfect skill set to navigate the corruption of our Nation's Capitol and put the peoples' needs ahead of the whims of the powerful.

The People of Minnesota Will Always Come First

Jill Roberg Abahsain is Minnesota born and raised. She’s had the opportunity to see the world and chooses to be a member of the Minnesota Strong.

Wheat faimer in the Minnesota Countryside
Psychologists say that by the time a child is 8 years of age, they have developed the basic personality that they’ll have for life. A desire to live a full life and experience new things were among those that Jill developed. In the course of developing that full life, she put down roots right here in Minnesota that couldn’t be severed.

Jill spent her school years in Minneapolis. Being raised there, she developed the fortitude and grit that defines “Minnesota Strong.” She spent her high school years at Roosevelt High like any other Minnesota teen. Given her natural ability to garner understanding, she easily landed acceptance to the University of Minnesota.

Her love of all things diverse lead her to fulfill he language credits with an audacious undertaking. She chose Farsi, a choice not for those without that Minnesota Strong grit. Farsi is the language of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. It is by far one of the more difficult languages to master by American English speakers. That choice led her to the romantic encounter that would be a defining crossroads in her life. She fell in love with Muhammad Abahsain, a fellow student and native of Saudi Arabia. He could understand and read the complex Arabic characters of Farsi.

“He was cool. He could read all the strange characters (of Farsi). But he didn’t know what he was saying,” Jill remembered.

There love lead them to a number of countries around the world and eventually to be married. In her travels, she gained knowledge, experience and outside perspective. They were married in Alexandria, Virginia in 1984.

Among the talents developed while exploring the world, she has edited books, become a published journalist, become an educator and conversed with those invited to State Department Embassy functions. Among her fond memories are fourth of July celebrations at the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia. It remained a fact that these we not her roots throughout her experiences.

“Saudi Arabia was not a relaxing place to live, not a place to retire to,” Jill said.

The restrictions on women in Saudi Arabia were unfair and unchangeable. After his death, she was not even allowed to attend her husband’s funeral or visit her husband’s grave.

“There was no particular reason to stay,” she said. “It wasn’t until I got here that I realized how scared I had been. It was tense.”

She returned to her roots with a new perspective, a new understanding, and a fortitude to fight for the people of Minnesota. She now knew what it meant to be Minnesota Strong.

When we elect Jill, there will be no question about our representation. She will fight for the Farm Bill. She will fight for Universal Healthcare that provides equal access to rural communities. She will fight for the funding of our rural education, with knowledge that we all deserve equal chance. She will fight for all of us and fight for what we deserve. The Minnesota Strong have earned a representative that will fight for us. This is our vote. This is our representative. This will be our win.

Jill Abahsain will represent the 7th District of Minnesota in the House of Representatives. She is Minnesota Strong.

Experiencing the World Brings Unique Understanding

Sometimes the answers surface more quickly when the possibilities are viewed from unknown angles. Minnesota governing will build care for our fellows.

One of the countries that Jill Abahsain has lived in - Egypt
Where a person stands is often etched by where a person has stood. Standing for rights is often the result of having ones rights stood on. The allure of traveling to exotic lands has been met with the plight of the people who suffer from it’s restrictions. Firsthand experience in failed equality can generate a broad swath of understanding, on which a person can better view what rights mean, what they are, and what they should be.

Jill’s travels have taken her to places as different as the civil rights that they hold. They range from the United Kingdom to Saudi Arabia. The United Kingdom, who’s Magna Carta provided protections from illegal imprisonment, access to swift justice, and limitations on feudal payments to the Crown as early as 1215, takes it’s peoples’ rights seriously. Saudi Arabia regularly uses torture as punishment, publicly beheads dissidents, has no free speech protections, and barely recognizes women as people.

With experiences as broad as these, it became abundantly clear that human rights are among the most imperative policies that a Nation can sanctify as law. The need for women’s rights became a fixture in her life. A woman’s reproductive rights are, first and foremost, just that. They are a human right.

Radical gender ideologues have hijacked the talking points on either side of the aisle. It is an attempt to speak on behalf of the people in a manner that silences their voices.

It’s time for your voice to be heard, not that of an elite party leadership that chooses to misrepresent you in the same way that the Sheikhs of Saudi Arabia do under threat of beheading. Under no circumstances will Jill allow the jurisprudence of dictatorial hatred to over power the rights of women. It is high time we elect a person who represent the will of the people of Minnesota. The people of Minnesota will have their rights of all varieties represented in Washington. It’s up to us to make it happen. On November 8th, 2022, take this message to the voting booth. You have rights. Your neighbor has rights. Our sons and daughters have rights.

In casting our votes for Jill Abahsain, we are protecting those rights. We the people only live free when we protect those rights.

Her Path to Education

With greater education comes greater opportunity and wealth. Our children deserve the chance to be the engeneers and constructors of the next great leap forward.


Jill has been fortunate enough to travel the world. Her world travels have given her a unique view of the freedoms that we as Americans share. This came under odd circumstances, however. At times it has taken her to places that don’t share the equity that many of us embrace. Saudi Arabia is one of those places.

The career opportunities available to women are in short supply under the Sunni Islamic revivalist and fundamentalist movement known as Wahhabism. It is among the most restrictive systems in the world for women. Becoming an educator was one of the few things she was allowed to do. It seems an unusual way to become as passionate as she has about the quality of education that our children receive.

With that experience came understanding. She now knows well that the quality of education a person is able to get is often the catalyst that ends generational impoverishment. With knowledge comes the power to end this otherwise defeating foe.

What our children deserve is the opportunity for a bright future. Jill Abahsains education and time as an educator is a gift to the children who would not have that opportunity if she were not elected on November 8th.

Families of Minnesota have the chance elect Jill to ensure that their children have the potential that they deserve.

Our Priorities are Her Priorities

Rural Healthcare

Medicare for All Universal Healthcare Healthcare in America is a failing system. There is no acceptable reason for the richest nation in the history of the world to rank 18th among developed countries.

Rural healthcare fails at an unparalleled level, further compounding an already an egregious violation of human rights. The Rural Health Disparities Overview reports on a number of these violations.

1) "There are higher rates of uninsured individuals residing in rural or nonmetro counties compared to their counterparts in urban or metro counties."

2) "Healthcare workforce shortages are prevalent throughout rural America."

3) "Specialty and subspecialty healthcare services are less likely to be available in rural areas and are less likely to include specialized and highly sophisticated or high-intensity care. This exacerbates problems for rural patients seeking specialized care who are faced with traveling significant distances for treatment."

4) "Reliable transportation to care can also be a barrier for rural residents due to long distances, poor road conditions, and the limited availability of public transportation options in rural areas."

It's easy to brush these off as statistics. At the root of these statements lies an ominous fact. Rural people get less care and it spells a loss of life. These facts are politicized and blamed on those who receive poor care.

The people of rural Minnesota are not lazy. Working harder is not the answer. It is not the result of anything that Minnesotans have done wrong. Anyone who would try to convice you otherwise is not representing you.

When we elect Jill Abahsain to represent the 7th district of Minnesota, we have elected to live longer, fuller lives. Minnesota, and the nation, deserve better. Healthcare is a human right. It is time to recognize this fact universally.

Rural Education

Rural Education for our Future Rural people aren't as educated as urban people.

If it struck a nerve when you read it, then you understood it correctly. It struck a nerve for me when I wrote it. People in the areas that provide the country with its most important commodities, don't have the access that they need.

There was a time when we lead the world in learning. As a result, we became the most prosperous nation the Earth has ever seen. We built railroads and highways. We innovated and invented. Most importantly, we built a strong middle class in the heartland and the people of small town America could pay all of their bills.

The first step to removing a peoples' control of their own future is to end critical thinking. There has not yet been complete success in this endeavor, but it's on the rise. Coming generations won't even know that there is a problem if we don't take action now.

According to statistics available at ers.usda.gov, 21% of rural Americans over 25 have a bachelors degree. That same demographic in urban areas has 35% of it's population with the same level of education. Bachelors degree median income in 2021 was $52,000 per year. For hischool grads, that's only $29,000. This doesn't even account for those who didn't finish high school.

I've found that the easiest way to lose readers is to do math. We're about to do some anyway.

.21 x $52,000 = $10,920
.79 x $29,000 = $22,910
$10,920 + 22,910 = $33,830 per person in rural areas

.35 x $52,000 = $18,200
.65 x $29,000 = $18,850
$18,200 + $18,850 = $37,050 per person in urban areas

$37,050 - $33,830 = $3,220

7th district population = 666,735
666,735 x $3,220 = $2,146,886,700

Rural education is getting better. It still doesn't measure up and it's time to fix that. Is it worth it to you to educate all of our children? Do you think that two-billion dollars would help the 7th distric economy? Can we afford to not invest in our childrens' futures? Please show your work.

Jill Abahsain stands with the facts, even when they aren't pleasant. Jill stands with education because she stands with our children's' futures.

Protecting the Farm Bill

The Farm Bill must be saved
The Farm Bill: Key Components to a Thriving Minnesota

Title 1 covers commodities.
It provides price support and pays the bills for farmers across the country. Without it, when crops are harvested the prices drop like a rock. When the supply is high, the value drops. Title 1 keeps this more stable. It ensures that you can pay the bills.

Title 2 keeps land usable.
If we salt the soil, we can't grow crops. We saw a disaster of poor land management during the dust bowl. Over grazing, poor rotation, and over-fertilization all contribute to crop failure. Conserving your farm and the surrounding land are imperative.

Title 3 keeps us viable on the world stage.
Competing with underdeveloped countries that have low quality and cheap products requires subsidies. It keeps your bottom line higher and America competitive.

Title 4 is supplemental nutrition.
Every time we use $1 to feed those in need, we add $1.67 to our economy. An enormous part of this lands directly in the pockets of America's farmers. It amounts to 1.8% of taxes and allows family farms to continue to pay the bills.

Title 5 extends credit where credit is needed.
Every family farm has had a bad year. Sometimes these occur back to back. The federal programs that provide loans in these cases are essential.

Title 6 builds rural economies.
Rural economic development is needed to build an economy that aids financial growth in Minnesota's 7th District.

Title 7 keeps us up to date.
Minnesota's farmers will never lose their grit. We are Minnesota Strong. The research portion is about innovation. Any edge we can get in protecting our land and producing our crops, helps to ensure that the next generation can thrive.

Title 8 keeps our land viable.
The soil washes away when it's not anchored. The forest is directly responsible for keeping our land from being barren. If we neglect to be good stewartds, soon we have nothing left.

Title 9 opens the energy market.
When we develop biofuels, we open a new avenue for sale, there are greater opportunities for proffit. Developing new revenue streams lifts farmers across the country.

Title 10 is to improve horticulture.
Certifications, infrastructure and research fuel the advantages of the next generation of farmers. Learning and applying that knowledge creates an environment where our children can succeed.

Title 11 prevents total loss.
The crop insurance title provides money to farmers to insure their crops. It helps cover losses in yeild and whole farm loss.

Title 12 is miscellanious.
It lives here if a different title didn't cover it.

These are the parts of the bill. They provide a living to our hard working farmers, the energy producers that supply them, and the communities that grew up around them. It is job producing legislation and empowers rural Minnesota.

Protecting this bill and the people who have built their lives in the 7th District are Jill Abahsain's top priority. We can not allow Fischbach to bankrupt our communities by decimation of the Farm Bill. Protect your farm and your future in the voting booth on November 8th.
