‘Squad’ member Tlaib may be vulnerable in tough primary

Democratic congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s approach to governing as an unapologetic fighter has made her a target of the GOP and her own party. Tlaib herself has taken aim at the status quo alongside three other first-term congresswomen of color who make up what’s known as “the squad.” Now the Michigan Democrat is the squad’s most vulnerable member, as she faces Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones in the Aug. 4 primary for the heavily Democratic district. The contest reflects the broader debate in the Democratic Party between the establishment and largely younger, more progressive activists, as well as the racial dynamics of the district.
