Former Michigan state legislator Rashida Tlaib is set to become one of the first Muslim women in Congress after she won the Democratic primary for a U.S. House seat in the state’s 13th Congressional District. As the nominee in a district that has historically voted Democratic―and with no Republican challengers―Tlaib is all but guaranteed a seat in Congress in November’s general-election vote. She could be joined in the historic feat by one or more other female Muslim candidates who are also running in 2018. Tlaib will also become first Palestinian-American U.S. congresswoman. “People think it’s corny—I do want to change the world, and I want people like me to have a seat at the table,” the daughter of Palestinian immigrants told the HuffPost before the election. Tlaib is running on a progressive platform, including support of Medicare for All and a $15 per hour minimum wage.
