Candidate Likely to Become First Muslim Female in US Congress

cG+=B3#2s8*~

Rashida Tlaib is one step closer to becoming the first Muslim female member of the United States Congress.

^7BvPV[3m&^Md=nqx@

With almost all ballots counted, Tlaib led all candidates for the Democratic Party's nomination in Michigan's 13th Congressional District. Tuesday's primary election decides who will be on the ballot in November's general election.

q.+ny+B=jHg@,

However, since there is no Republican or other candidates, Tlaib will be unopposed in November.

Ahlam Jbara lives in Chicago, six hours away by car from the Michigan congressional district in the city of Detroit. But she thought the Tlaib campaign was so important that she traveled all that way to be part of it. She said she identified closely with the candidate.

"As a Muslim American, as an Arab American, as a Palestinian American...I'm her, she's me."

Jixz*6RV7)O*2)Sc)

Across the country, about 90 Muslim Americans are on ballots for elected office during this year's elections. Many are running as Democrats hoping to become part of a so called "blue wave" for the party seeking to gain control of Congress.

[;u~VxTpRG-krnD

Tlaib is among 13 Muslim candidates running for office in Michigan. The Detroit Free Press newspaper notes that, of the candidates seeking election in Michigan's primary elections, 24 are immigrants or children of immigrants. Tlaib is among them.

WbC#|k3F=BJ

She has gained attention around the country, especially from Muslim American women who see her candidacy as a door opening.

J0B+6L!YHL7EOz6O

"She's turning out first time voters, not just youth, but others who are the first time voters who've been American citizens for a long time, even those who are born here but have never voted before because they didn't have faith in their government."

cml-DhdD)Fawrrn,J

Jbara said Tlaib made a big effort to meet voters going door to door.

AXYU~D~veqqBQ+l

Tlaib said she was not well recognized by voters when she started. But, she said her campaign knocked on more than 50,000 doors.

X=1VEylYxl[A7

The race was close until the end. Early Wednesday morning, Tlaib heard the news that she had received more votes than Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. She then thanked everyone who had helped her and also her family.

0jD!__Y2^g^

"I want to thank my Mom, who is from a small village in the West Bank..." she said.

4%y[,YoUa*qDFTR(

A former Michigan state lawmaker, Tlaib is expected to take the seat in the House of Representatives once held by John Conyers. The long-time lawmaker stepped down in December for health reasons as he faced accusations of sexual wrongdoing.

j8X)!acGC~96_M

Tlaib is not the only Muslim American woman running who could serve in Congress. Somali American lawmaker Ilhan Omar is running in a primary election in Minnesota on August 14. She could join Tlaib in the next Congress.
