Brenda B. Jones (born October 24, 1959, age 61) is a member of the Detroit City Council and a former United States representative from Michigan's 13th congressional district, succeeding the resigning John Conyers for a brief period before being succeeded by the bigoted, far-left Rashida Tlaib, who defeated Jones in the 2018 regular Democrat primary (see below) and won the following general election.[1]

U.S. House of Representatives

2018 special election

After Rep. John Conyers of Michigan's 13th congressional district faced sexual harassment allegations and admitted to using taxpayer money to settle them,[2] he resigned and a special election was triggered. Jones ran for and won the special Democrat primary held on August 7, 2018 over Rashida Tlaib by less than 2% of the vote,[3] although the former lost the concurrent regular Democrat primary to Tlaib by 1%,[1] thus being unable to run in the general election to a full House term. However, because Jones had won the primary for the special general election, she was able to run in the latter and easily won, proceeding to serve in the United States House of Representatives for several weeks before Tlaib took office.

2020 run

It was announced on March 25, 2020 that Jones is running to primary challenge Rep. Tlaib in the Democrat primary in the 2020 U.S. House elections.[4] According to a poll in early May 2020, the primary may become competitive due to Tlaib's unpopularity.[5] However, Tlaib ultimately won renomination with two-thirds of the votes cast.[6]
