We’ll look at the elections of Rashida Tlaib and Ihlam Omar as the first two Muslim American women elected to the U.S. Congress, the defeat of Palestinian-Mexican candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar in California, and the election of at least five other Arab Americans to congressional seats.
We’ll also talk about local races including the heated contest between Palestinian Muslim American Abdelnasser Rashid and Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison in the Chicago suburban 17th District. Rashid came within 1,3770 votes of unseating the Republican veteran who has become a disappointment for the Republican party because of numerous controversies and leadership failings. Rashid ran a powerful campaign and came close to unseat the weaker Morrison who won only because of allies who stood by him who he later betrayed.
Watch for Rashid in a future election contest. He has a great future.
