Tlaib the target of Democratic PAC’s six-figure ad buy: ‘Wrong side of history’

Article originally appeared on

A Democratic PAC launched an ad campaign Thursday against Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her stance on Israel as it fights a war with terrorist group Hamas.

The ad, titled “History and Humanity,” will run on broadcast and cable networks throughout Detroit, Michigan. Tlaib’s district encompasses a portion of the city.

“It’s important to us for people who live in the Detroit area to understand what her positions have been and just how out of step and radical her positions have been,” Democratic Majority for Israel President Mark Mellman, who is also a Democratic pollster, told the New York Times.

Regarding the group’s goal, he said the hope is that Tlaib might be forced to “moderate her positions.” Otherwise, a “more moderate” candidate may be inspired to run against her.

The group said it is “not actively recruiting” anyone to run against Tlaib.
