Terror tied CAIR is ecstatic. As is the pro-sharia thug Linda Sarsour. What kind of candidates are being fielded by the Republican Party? Are the Republicans even fielding candidates in these districts?
More young Muslim women elected to local and state offices
By GOPUSA.COM, November 8, 2019:
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has lent her support to the 26 Muslim candidates who emerged victorious in Tuesday’s off-year US elections, tweeting news of their successes.
The election wins bring the total number of Muslims elected to office in the States this year to 34. Fifteen of the candidates were newly elected. Muslim advocacy groups have described the results as a blow against Islamophobia and a triumph for community organization.
Tlaib is one of four Democrat congresswomen who have shot to prominence thanks to their demagogic support for minority rights. Describing herself as a Palestinian American, she regularly uses Twitter to attack Israel.
Retweeting a video by minorities-supporting campaign group “She The People” on election day, Tlaib commented: “Get out of the way. We are here and more are coming.”
Among the winners was 23-year-old Safiya Khalid, who took her seat on Lewiston City Council with nearly 70 percent of the vote.

Also celebrating in Virginia were Lisa Zargarpur, elected to the Prince William County School Board, Buta Biberaj, who became Loudoun County’s new commonwealth’s attorney in a tight race against the incumbent Republican candidate, and 24 year-old Abrar Omeish, who took a place on the Fairfax County School Board making her both the youngest person to hold elected office in the state.
“What do Muslim Americans do during a time of heightened Islamophobia under a xenophobic administration? We run for office and win,” said Linda Sarsour, executive director of Muslim-American advocacy group MPower Change.
