(ABC 6 News) -- The first candidate has emerged in the race for Minnesota House District 26A, which covers most of Rochester.
Abdulkadir Abdalla is the principal at Rochester Math and Science Academy.
The Democrat's top priorities include affordable health care, quality education, and affordable housing.
He says he plans to use his knowledge and leadership skills to bring a message to the capitol.
"I can deliver the message of everybody. I have the experience, I have the talent, I have the education and I know how to prioritize what the issues are,” Abdalla said.
The position is currently held by Democratic Rep. Tina Liebling, who is running for governor.
No one else has announced a bid for the seat.
