I don't think there's any one head of the Democratic Party

Abdul El-Sayed

Gretchen Whitmer has won the Democratic nomination for MI governor, besting two competitors to advance to the November race to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Rick Snyder.

"As your governor, I'll enforce our immigration laws and I'll ban sanctuary cities in Michigan", Schuette said in a recent advertisement that also featured Trump. "A 90 second break and then we're gonna go towards - a 90 day sprint towards November".

In Michigan, State Attorney General Bill Schuette won the Republican nomination for governor on Tuesday night, defeating three other candidates working to fill the seat to be vacated by conservative Gov. Rick Snyder.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a US House candidate in NY.

"Women voters are coming out to the polls in droves all over the country to vote for strong, progressive women candidates, and MI was the latest example of that", Pohl said in an email. He likes Trump but said the president's endorsement did not sway him.

Vice President Pence and other Republican leaders gathered at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel. "We see it happening all across the country".

In the frantic closing days, Whitmer campaigned with union leaders, members of the state's Democratic congressional delegation and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, who said she is the party's best chance to retake the governorship in November. During his victory speech at Dow Diamond baseball field, Schuette said he's ready to take her on in the general. "She doesn't want to be in a situation where she's going to be challenged". "And Whitmer was one of the architects of the policies that resulted in the lost decade".

In the aftermath, Whitmer communications director Zack Pohl shared his frustration with a pre-election narrative that, he argued, understated his candidate's progressive record and offered simplistic assumptions about where the Democratic energy resides. Both Shri Thanedar and Abdul El Sayed positioned themselves as progressives.

USA officials raise alarm about election interference ahead of midterms
Right before the briefing began, the White House released a letter Bolton sent to Senate Democrats about election interference. Mr Coats was asked if he was accusing rogue Russian individuals or the Kremlin itself of intervening in U.S. elections.

Her opponent, the 33-year-old son of Egyptian immigrants ran on a statewide "Medicare for all" plan, public internet, tuition-free college and his refusal to accept corporate PAC money.

"When we, for example, made a decision to take the affirmative and bold step into building an interstate highway system, into electrifying this country, into providing tuition-free public K-12 education, those are not capitalist things", she said.

Schuette, who had been accused by Calley of misusing his public office for political business, also sought to bring Republicans together and criticized Whitmer. Underfunding our schools, crumbling infrastructure, and water we can't drink. "What we do know is that we are winning hearts, minds and an American consensus".

Libertarian candidates were also on the primary ballot for the first time in MI history.

Bill Hall is the chair of the Michigan Libertarian party.

"The fact that there was so much more attention from the media and the electorate because the Libertarian party was participating in the primary". Some Oakland precincts ran out of ballots, possibly due to higher-than-expected turnout.

Fred Woodhams, a spokesman for the MI secretary of state's office, said Tuesday's turnout was "drastically higher" than in past primaries, approaching 2.2 million voters.
