DescriptionVirginia GOP Senate candidate Corey Stewart attacked Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed, who is Muslim, as an “ISIS commie” in a since-deleted tweet.

“Michigan almost elected a far left ISIS commie,” Stewart wrote Wednesday, the day after El-Sayed’s defeat in the state’s Democratic primary.

“This guy wants to abolish ICE & won 300,000 votes. Dangerous stuff. Don’t let wimpy @timkaine bring this dangerous, far left communism to VA,” Stewart continued, referring to his Virginia Democratic opponent, Tim Kaine.

El-Sayed, Detroit’s former health director, won about 30 percent of the vote in Michigan’s three-way Democratic gubernatorial primary, behind Gretchen Whitmer, who garnered 52 percent.

“Shawarma trucks on every corner. And Medicare for All,” El-Sayed tweeted in response to Stewart’s provocation.
