Biden Officials Meet with Arab American Leaders in Michigan as Group Urges Voters to Reject Biden

HeadlineFeb 08, 2024

President Biden is sending a delegation to the swing state of Michigan today to meet with Arab and Muslim leaders amid growing opposition to U.S. support for Israel’s war on Gaza — and to Biden’s candidacy. Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud, who previously refused to meet with Biden’s campaign manager, announced Wednesday he is joining over 30 other Michigan officials who are vowing to cast an “uncommitted” vote in the state’s primary on February 27. The effort is being led by the group Listen to Michigan, which is headed by Congressmember Rashida Tlaib’s sister Layla Elabed.

In other election news, Democrat Marianne Williamson has suspended her presidential campaign against Joe Biden.
