A Muslim American From Egyptian Descent, Abdul El-Sayed, is currently preparing for a primary race on the 7th of August as he is running for governor of Michigan, USA. However, if the Democratic nominee wins, he will be the first-ever Muslim governor in American history.

The 33-year-old son of Egyptian immigrants is a medical Rhodes scholar who also attended the University of Michigan with a major in biology and political science. He’s also the former director of the Detroit Health Department. His campaign pushes for establishing a $15 minimum wage, universal health care, and education with a plan for tuition-free college for families with income less than $150,000 per year.

On Wednesday, a new poll placed El-Sayed second among the three candidates competing for the Democratic party with 27% of the votes. However, the results have also indicated that the American Politician and Former Senate Democratic Leader, Gretchen Whitmer, is the strongest candidate among the three. Moreover, the Indian-born American Author, Shri Thaneder, came in third.
