    LANSING, Mich. — “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib won a challenge for her House seat in Michigan’s primary, in a rematch with the woman she narrowly defeated two years ago.


    Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women in Congress, easily secured likely re-election to the 13th District in and around Detroit. Her opponent in Tuesday's primary was Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, who lost by 1 percentage point in 2018 when the primary field was larger.

    Jones on the same day defeated Tlaib to later fill out the remainder of John Conyers’ term.


    Tlaib, 44, will face an underdog Republican candidate in November.

    The showdown in one of the country’s poorest districts had featured Jones criticizing Tlaib’s confrontational style and vowing to focus on bringing home funding. Tlaib once called the president an expletive while vowing to impeach him. He later targeted her with racist tweets.


    “I'm confident. I'm confident in the movement that we started. I'm confident that as we experience this tonight, we are going to see that our country is ready, is ready for someone like me and others that are saying, 'Enough. Enough with corporate greed. Enough with the assault on our families," Tlaib said in a video to supporters after the polls closed.

    Tlaib, an unapologetic fighter and progressive with a national profile, noted that Trump signed into law a bill she sponsored to protect retirees’ pension benefits and that she has gotten amendments approved with bipartisan support. She also cited work creating neighborhood service centers to help residents throughout the district.


    Andrew E. Bryant, 71, voted for Tlaib at New Providence Baptist Church on Detroit’s west side. He said she has been outspoken on behalf of Detroit’s working class and poor, and especially against water service shut-offs for people unable to pay their bills.
