Troubles in Socialist Paradise: Rashida Tlaib declines to endorse Joe Biden

“If the ultimate goal is to get rid of Donald Trump, that doesn’t have to involve me actually endorsing Biden,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said during an interview with Newsweek magazine.

Tlaib said that she doesn’t want to get into debates with people in her district on whether Biden deserves their vote. “Residents come up to me and say, ‘Rashida, I don’t know. I hear Joe Biden this, Joe Biden that’.” 

Tlaib is seeking reelection to a second term in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District and is running against Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones in next week’s Democratic primary.
