Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib has called on voters in her state to consider voting "uncommitted" in the upcoming presidential primary on February 27, expressing her dissatisfaction with President Joe Biden's approach to the Gaza conflict.

In a social media video, Tlaib highlighted the feeling of neglect among Michigan residents towards the current administration, stating, "Right now, we feel completely neglected and just unseen by our government."

Encouraging her constituents to take action, Tlaib emphasized the significance of their voices, urging them to vote uncommitted as a form of protest. She underlined the importance of standing up for those affected by the conflict in Gaza, stating, "I want you to think of all of the amazing young children and the people again, lives were lost in Gaza. This is the way you can raise our voices. Don’t make us even more invisible."

Tlaib's stance against the Biden administration's handling of the Gaza conflict is reflected in her recent actions in Congress. She notably abstained from voting in favor of a resolution condemning Hamas for civilian casualties following an attack on Israel. Tlaib's call for a voting block against President Biden aims to send a clear message of discontent, stating, "to say enough is enough."


With former President Donald Trump currently leading in Michigan polls by 4.8% according to RealClearPolitics, Tlaib's plea for voters to consider an "uncommitted" stance adds an intriguing dynamic to the upcoming primary in the swing state.
