Tlaib has spent most of her time attacking people and working her celebrity status rather than focusing on the 13th District’s needs.
(Tlaib has repeatedly refused to appear on Ray Hanania’s radio shows or podcasts to do interviews, and she has blocked Hanania on all her social news media. NOTE: I interview everyone and if Rashida sets aside her pettiness and agrees to be interviewed, I am happy to interview her, too.)
Rashida Tlaib challenger Brenda Jones joins Ray Hanania on Arab American Radio Friday 8 AM Detroit.
Brenda Jones, the Detroit City Council President who is challenging Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib in the 13th Congressional District in the August 4 Democratic Primary will join US Arab Radio’s “The Arab Street with Ray Hanania” on Friday, July 10 beginning at 8 AM (EST) live on WNZK AM 690.
In the upcoming August 4 Democratic Primary election in Michigan’s 13th District, Jones will go head-to-head against Tlaib with the backing of all four of the candidates who originally ran in the full term contest that split the vote to allow Tlaib to win. in 2018, Tlaib defeated Jones by a slim margin of only 900 votes out of more than 89,200 votes cast.

There were two concurrent elections on August 7, 2018 to succeed Congressman John Conyers who died on Dec. 5, 2017.
The first was a special election that was held on Aug 7, 2018 to complete Conyers’ remaining term of office (which was five weeks).
The second election was also held on August 7 to succeed Conyer and represent the 13th district in the new two-year term (Jan. 2019 through Jan. 2021).
Jones defeated Tlaib in the special election by a vote of 32,727 to Tlaib who had 31,084 with only four candidates in the race.
But Tlaib defeated Jones in the two-year term election by a vote of 27,841 to Jones who had 26,941 votes with six total candidates in the race.
The two races caused some confusion among voters.
In the second two-year term election battle, there were four African American candidates including Jones who split the district’s predominant African American vote, (while the special election only had two African American candidates including Jones).
In this year’s rematch, Jones has the endorsement of all four of the candidates who ran in that 2018 election, Coleman Young, Ian Conyers, Shannelle Jackson and Bill Wild. In a head-to-head contest, with the backing of all of the past contenders, and with Rashida Tlaib defining herself more as a far leftwing extremist activist rather than as a champion for the needs of the 13th District’s voters, Brenda Jones is clearly building a strong momentum to unseat Rashida and give the district the leadership it needs.
