Michigan just went red for first time since 1988. Ahmed calls up BuzzFeed reporter Talal Ansari, who has been following the organizing efforts of Arab Americans to get out the vote in the Michigan cities of Dearborn and Hamtramck, to reflect on how people voted and why. Plus, Ansari speaks briefly with Abdullah Hammoud, who, at 26, would go on to be elected to Michigan's House of Representatives.
