Democrat Rashida Tlaib is set to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress after she won the nomination to run unopposed for the House seat long held by Democratic Rep. John Conyers, who retired while facing sexual harassment claims. The 28-year-old Democratic rising star is stumping for two young, progressives hoping to win Democratic primaries in Kansas and MI.

Erielle Davidson, a contributor to The Federalist, said Ocasio-Cortez was willing to engage in dialogue in May, but several months later she has changed her tune.

Three progressive candidates who had gotten Ocasio-Cortez's support did win Tuesday, including former MI state representative Rashida Tlaib, who won a six-candidate primary and will run unopposed in the general election.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star on the left, sparred with the conservative pundit Ben Shapiro on Thursday after Shapiro challenged her to a debate in exchange for a $10,000 campaign donation.

In Kansas, congressional candidate James Thompson cruised to victory in the Democratic primary after getting visits from Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ocasio-Cortez is back on the campaign trail, but this time in the Midwest. In November, Thompson will face U.S. Rep. Ron Estes, the Republican congressman who beat him past year in a special election after receiving the backing of President Donald Trump.

Democratic New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a stir when she compared a debate challenge from conservative commentator Ben Shapiro to cat-calling.

"What we need to realize is our struggles are linked", she told supporters.

Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bill Schuette, speaks to members of the media ahead of his election day party at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich., Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018. "When you've got a Legislature that's so male, all the leaders making decisions around our health care being white males. you get the policies that we have here in MI". Bernie Sanders, D-Vt., during his presidential campaign in 2016. The incumbent, Mr. Joe Crowley, had been in office for a considerable number of years and was widely rumored to be a viable candidate to succeed Nancy Pelosi as Speaker should the Democrats take over the House majority following the midterms. Both are pushing radical ideas such as free healthcare, "Medicare for all", and free college tuition, and, at least with Ocasio-Cortez, open borders.

Her campaign spokesman, Corbin Trent, said her interstate travels to bolster other liberals are "for the distinct objective of benefitting people in her district".
