Former Michigan state Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Democratic nomination for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District, paving the way for her to become the first Muslim woman elected into Congress.

Tlaib, who ran for a House seat previously held by former Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), beat out five other candidates in the state’s Democratic primary, according to The Associated Press. 

The article goes on to state the following:

Nn Republicans or third-party candidates ran in the primary, meaning that Tlaib is set to start a two-year term in Congress after the November election.

She would become the first Muslim woman and Palestinian-American in Congress, HuffPost reported. 

“People think it’s corny ― I do want to change the world, and I want people like me to have a seat at the table,” Tlaib told HuffPost last month.

Tlaib served in the Michigan House from 2009 to 2014, according to the AP, which noted that the Democratic primary in her district, where she battled Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, was still too close to call as of Wednesday morning.

      Unfortunately she is, that’s their way of getting in, after 9/11 one would think Americans would realise that these people hate us and always have, nothing has changed and in fact they are more determined to infiltrate the government and they are being helped by Democrats and liberals.
      Linda Sasour backs this Muslim and that says everything, this Nation is in trouble and it’s going to get worse.
      If Democrats and liberals think their heads will be spared when these evil invaders commit their Jihad they are living in a dream world, they have made it clear world wide that this is their plan, my son was in the Middle East for several years and they would tell him the same thing, and yet we stupidly let them in and infiltrate our government, shame on these people,
      Many people died by these evil people and they haven’t changed one bit, as DML once said they are waiting and they do it well.

    I live in MI and can’t believe she is running unopposed!! Where are the Republicans in this district? She was already a rep for state gov and now she will be elected into US Congress? Obama had many Muslims working in the White House and this is how they gain control. Little by little they infiltrate our govt and they will change our govt as we know it! Wake up MI!! Someone needs to run against her in November!!

    People in Michigan need to find a Republican that can be added to the ballot. It can still be done. A miracle to be sure, but it can be done. You get enough signatures and you can put the Republican In as a write in on the ballot. If Sarousar loves her, she is bad news.
