Some members of the squad are facing criticism for criticizing Israel after they were attacked by Hamas.
They might now be facing primary challengers.
A Dem PAC might fund primary challengers against Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Cori Bush.
Fox Business reported:
A Democrat-aligned political action committee (PAC) largely funded by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman could fund primary challenges against progressive Reps. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., who’ve sparked controversy with their criticism of Israel in the wake of Hamas’ terror attack.
Dmitri Mehlhorn, Hoffman’s longtime political advisor, reached out to the Mainstream Democrats PAC to gauge a potential primary challenge from more moderate candidates capable of defeating Tlaib and Bush in their deep blue districts. The news was first reported by CNBC, and Mehlhorn later confirmed his thinking to Forbes and Jewish Insider.
“One of the very, very small silver linings of this horrible moment is that it does modestly increase the likelihood that we can remove some of these members of Congress,” Mehlhorn told Jewish Insider.
He told the outlet that like-minded donors have since reached out to him in support of the effort, saying that he believes there’s “a winning electoral coalition, a large governing majority of Americans who want their leaders to be able to condemn violent atrocities and mass rape.”
Tlaib was recently censured by the House.
Fox News reported:
The House of Representatives has voted to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., in a 234 – 188 vote on Tuesday night.
The punishment, while largely symbolic, was a formal public rebuke of her most recent anti-Israel comments made in the wake of the Jewish nation’s war against terror group Hamas.
Twenty-two Democrats voted with 212 Republicans to censure Tlaib. Four GOP lawmakers voted against the measure. Four lawmakers voted present. The measure was introduced by freshman Rep. Rich McCormick, R-Ga., on Monday.
“If this is not worthy of censure, what is? When you can call for the annihilation of a country and its people, if that’s not worthy of a censure, what is?” McCormick said on the House floor Tuesday.
