Would you vote for this guy? Does world view matter to you? Can a devout Muslim bring unity to a state?
Of course, his platform is driven by equity and inclusion.
Dennis Michael Lynch has the details on this one:
An Egyptian-American doctor could become the United States’ first Muslim governor if he is elected in 2018.
… If elected, he would face the major water and economic crises in Detroit and Flint, the two poorest cities in the country.
El-Sayed has officially announced his campaign, claiming that the time to act is now and that Michigan’s shared future is what unites its people.
… “My work has always been about building and leading the kinds of institutions that create opportunity for real people by breaking down barriers they face,” he said. “That work has never been more important than it is today. The politics of fear and hatred threaten to divide us.”
… “We are not sitting on the sidelines,” he said. “We must act. We cannot wait until our children are poisoned or their schools are shut down.”
Oh, and then there is this:
… El-Sayed is not a fan of Trump, and claims citizens of his state are having “buyer’s remorse.” In a separate interview, he claimed that Trump’s decisions “are at odds with deeply held American values, and distractions from real issues.”
