Jihad-Rep Rashida Tlaib likely to face challenger in 2020

Unfortunately whoever challenges Tlaib will not be a Republican. It would certainly be difficult for a Republican to flip Tlaib’s district. However, such a task is worth a shot. African Americans (who make up the majority of Tlaib’s district) are enjoying unprecedented prosperity under President Trump. President Trump’s pro-America economic policies (along with criminal justice reform) have had a positive impact on the African American community. The Republican Party should field a candidate who can deliver that message. Rashida Tlaib’s tenure in congress has been disgraceful. Tlaib is also much more interested in demonizing Israel, than she is in improving the lives of her constituents. The citizens of Michigan 13 deserve much better than that.

Rashida Tlaib likely to face challenger in 2020 — but beating her won’t be easy

Most political experts expect U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib will get a challenge next year but beating her, considering her name recognition, will be hard

By Detroit Free Press, September 27, 2019

Ten months out from next year’s congressional primaries in Michigan, it’s almost certain U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, will face at least one Democratic challenger who will be trying to make the argument to Wayne County voters that she’s too controversial and that she has been more worried about Palestine than her own district.

Who will challenge her? It’s entirely unclear. But whoever steps up to do so is facing the fight of their lives — on the campaign trail and on the facts.

In Tlaib, they’ll be facing an incumbent who not only can raise scads of money and is known for tireless campaigning, but whose name recognition — thanks in large part to attacks on her by President Donald Trump over her stances on Israel and an impeachment effort she has led since January — has gone from local to international.

In many cases, that has led to people in southeastern Michigan and elsewhere rallying around her. And while some — especially those outside her district, Republican opponents and some in the Jewish community — have labeled her as too divisive, there are others who have come to her defense, considering her a progressive icon. Establishment Democrats in Detroit are unlikely to mount a concerted challenge to her.

“Conventional wisdom would have it that it’s more than likely that she would be challenged,” said Jonathan Kinloch, who chairs the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Committee that Tlaib represents. “But there is no way in the world that the (group) won’t endorse the sitting member of Congress. She’s given us no reason not to stand with her. She’s only shown courage and commitment. … There is no reason why we wouldn’t support our sitting congresswoman.“

Metro Detroit politics being what they are, however, a challenge is almost guaranteed.
