Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are joining forces to elect an underdog but potentially history-making candidate on the ballot in Michigan next week: Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old physician who would be the nation’s first Muslim governor.

Sanders is spending the final weekend of the race in the state, and Ocasio-Cortez was there last week to campaign with El-Sayed ahead of Tuesday’s Democratic primary. He also has a constellation of hard-left groups in his corner, including, Justice Democrats and Our Revolution, the offshoot of Sanders’ failed presidential campaign.

The article goes on to state the following:

The progressive icons are going all-in for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old physician running an underdog campaign for Michigan governor.

After a July lull in primary season, the race in Michigan represents the first opportunity for insurgent liberals to shove Democrats leftward since Ocasio-Cortez’s upset victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) six weeks ago. Tuesday is also the first real test of the burgeoning alliance between Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, who have also campaigned for two congressional candidates on the ballot next week in Kansas.

El-Sayed, a first-time candidate who’s trailed in public polls, has emerged as a threat to the front-runner, former state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer is a favorite of most elected Democrats as well as organized labor and women’s groups such as EMILY’s List, which backs Democratic women who support abortion rights.

According to the report, public polls for the primary show Whitmer leading El-Sayed. As Sanders enters the fray, however,  El-Sayed backers and Sanders allies “see a parallel in recent history.”

The report notes:

“Bernie was written off” going into the 2016 presidential primary in Michigan, said Democratic strategist Julian Mulvey, whose firm worked for Sanders on that campaign. “I think Nate Silver predicted that Hillary Clinton had a 99 percent chance of winning in Michigan, and Bernie was able to pull it out. So the best thing you can do is have Bernie going in there to help try to close.”

  1. It is unbelievable that this is even happening and that out of all the citizens of mixed races and religions whose ancestors have lived in the country for generations are in this state aren’t fighting to represent their long time American culture. Abdul is more than likely ultimately interested in pushing his deep faith.

  2. This is how it starts, it’s on their agenda. Remove history and historical presence, indoctrinate the students, infiltrate government and it goes on and on. I’m hoping the people of Michigan are seeing through this ruse. And, Cortez is just batshit crazy anyway, at least Bernie can blame it on age.

    • We have relatives in Michigan, and they have been blinded by MSM. They still don’t believe Trump has done anything good for our Country, as a matter a fact they can’t stand Trump because he isn’t Presidential. It is impossible to have a political conversation with them. Unfortunately they have been brainwashed by MSM.

      • Pauline: You are so right when you say there are some here in Michigan who have been brainwashed. I too have relatives who feel the same as your’s…however, it just goes to show you how the liberal mind works, when you can’t have a civilized conversation with them. I still have faith in the majority of Michiganders who continue to support our president and understand the dangers of putting entrenched Muslims into any kind of office.

      • Rest assured there are a ton of us Michiganders who are not smoke screened by the agenda. I don’t think he will make the ballot but if he does he is so extreme I don’t think he would win.

  3. What is so important to get this Muslim elected as governor of OUR state? There is no way this is going to happen, despite the mass influx some of our communities have seen of these Muslims who have basically taken over populations of people who have lived here for generations. Hamtramck comes to mind as a large community of Polish-Americans…Michigan, if you don’t see what’s right in front of your face, then there’s no hope for educating you. Out where I live, is a huge community of hard working conservative blue collar and farmers who still believe in God, family, community and doing the right thing for the good of the people.
