Since there is no Republican Paty to speak of in the district, this all but assures that the Somalian-born hajib wearing socialist, who identifies herself on her Twitter profile as an "intersectional feminist," will gain the seat during the November mid-term elections.
Her economic policy positions are worst than
even those of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but as I described at EconomicPolicyJournal.com, she is a smoother politician than Ocasio-Cortez---Obama smooth. See: About The Woman Who Could Be Entering Congress in 2019 Who Holds Even More Extreme Socialist Views Than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
That said, she is good on foreign policy--very good. From her website:
We must end the state of continuous war, as these wars have made us less safe. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed, entire countries have been destabilized, and we are currently in the midst of an extreme global migration crisis...
We are currently engaged in a number of wars that have no end in sight—Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia. These wars have destabilized regions, created massive humanitarian crises, and continue to hurt our image across the world. We must end these wars, and we must avoid military-use as a last resort in the future.
Reduce total spending on the military from its projected FY 2019 levels of $886 billion and reinvest that money into healthcare, education, housing, jobs, clean energy, and infrastructure
Cut the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) that has been called the Pentagon’s ‘slush fund’. In 2017, the OCO budget increased by 41% to $82.4 billion.
Eliminate wasteful military programs like the F-35 fighter jet program, saving taxpayers $1 trillion dollars total
Scale back the number of US military bases across the world
REPEAL HARMFUL SANCTIONS AND OPPOSE ALL U.S. INTERVENTION INTO DEMOCRATICALLY-ELECTED GOVERNMENTS
Sanctions and economic blockades have been used to hurt the economies of countries outside of the U.S. sphere of influence. These measures hurt working people in other countries and foster animosity towards our government.
End sanctions and embargoes against countries, which ultimately only hurt the working families of those countries
Support diplomatic solutions to the conflicts in both North Korea and Iran, and avoid military conflict at all costs
Support the JCPOA, and advocate for a deal that does not disproportionately impose economic sanctions on the people of Iran.
.SUPPORT A PEACE THAT AFFIRMS THE SAFETY AND RIGHTS OF BOTH PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS
Stability in the Middle East depends on the establishment of a lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis. But without justice, there will never be peace. The United States must work with the international community, and not unilaterally, to work towards a solution. I will use my voice in Congress and work with communities on the ground to center the ultimate goal of self-determination and peace.
Fight against efforts from the Trump administration to undermine the peace process, and support the autonomy for the Israeli and Palestinian peoples to define what a solution looks like
Uplift the voices of Palestinians demanding an end to the occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and end the siege of Gaza
Oppose the killing of civilians in Gaza and the expansion of settlements into the West Bank
