Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib won her Democratic primary against challenger Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones, according to AP.

Why it matters: Tlaib, a democratic socialist and member of "The Squad," found herself in a vulnerable position, facing off against Jones after narrowly beating her two years ago.

  • One of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Tlaib has found herself both praised and criticized for her condemnations of President Trump and early calls for his impeachment.
  • Tlaib received an endorsement last week from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who had clashed with "The Squad" early in the congressional term but is now proudly backing the group of progressive firebrands.

The big picture: Tlaib is the only member of "The Squad" to face an intense primary challenge, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) won her primary in a landslide, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) is running unopposed, and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is favored to win her race next week, per the Wall Street Journal.

Anti-Muslim candidate Laura Loomer loses U.S. House race

Far-right conspiracy theorist and self-described "proud Islamophobe" Laura Loomer has lost her House race to Democratic incumbent Rep. Lois Frankel, AP reports.

Why it matters: Loomer has been banned from Facebook and Twitter over controversial statements, including anti-Muslim remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). While her candidacy gained national attention, Florida's 21st Congressional District, where she ran, is heavily Democratic.

Scoop: Over 200 papers quietly sue Big Tech

Newspapers all over the country have been quietly filing lawsuits against Google and Facebook for the past year, alleging the two firms monopolized the digital ad market for revenue that would otherwise go to local news. 

Why it matters: What started as a small-town effort to take a stand against Big Tech has turned into a national movement, with over 200 newspapers involved across dozens of states.
