Activist Cori Bush Unseated Rep.William Lacy Clay

Black Lives matter protest leader Cori Bush has defeated William Lacy Clay, a long-time representative in Missouri Democratic primary. The Clay has represented the district for 50+ years.

Ms. Cori Bush has received 49 percent votes compared with the 45.5 percent votes of the Clay. In 2018, she has tried to ousted Mr. Clay but failed to do so. But this time she has defeated him.

In her victory speech, she said: “It is historic that this year, of all years, we’re sending a Black, working-class single mother, who has been fighting for Black lives since Ferguson, all the way to the halls of Congress.”

Congratulations are in orders after she unseated William Clay. Bernie Sanders took to Twitter and wrote: “Congratulations to Cori Bush on her primary victory tonight.”

She is a true progressive who stands with working people and will take on the corporate elite of this country when she gets to Congress,” he added.

Cori Bush is an American politician, single mother, and a former nurse who would be the first Black woman who represents the state of Missouri in Congress.
