List of Muslims Running in 2018 Primary Elections

After Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election, muslims all over the U.S. decided to run for office. All registered democrats, they decided to run to fight against President Trump and his policies. Besides being democrats and anti President Trump, the other thing these candidates have in common, is that they are calling for gun control.
