Rashida Tlaib Wins Democratic Primary In Michigan – Will Become The Very First Muslim Woman In Congress

(Yahoo) Former Michigan state legislator Rashida Tlaib won the Democratic primary on Tuesday for a U.S. House seat in the state’s 13th Congressional District.

She beat out five other Democratic candidates seeking to fill the seat of Rep. John Conyers, who resigned in December amid allegations of sexual harassment. As the Democratic nominee in a district that has historically voted Democratic ― and with no Republican challengers ― Tlaib is all but guaranteed a seat in Congress in November’s general election.
