Rep. Rashida Tlaib weighed-in Monday on her brutal primary battle in her home district in Michigan; saying people want “Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, Fighting Structural Racism” and more.
“You all know, it’s not my name on the ballot. It’s Medicare for All, it’s the Green New Deal, fighting against structural racism, combating poverty in our country, ending discrimination with the auto insurance industry,” said Tlaib.
“I can’t thank you all enough for being a part of this journey with me,” she added. “I can’t wait to show our nation that this is what people want right now.”
