The primary is over, but MI is only about 3 months away from November and the candidates are ready to get started.

Gretchen Whitmer of MI and Laura Kelly of Kansas joined the list Tuesday. She will face the Republican incumbent, Mike Bishop, in race now rated a tossup.

Schuette also thanked his competitors in the Republican party for their commitment to the state and their service to MI. Whitmer and Kelly both have extensive records as legislative leaders and pitch themselves as get-it-done pragmatists.

In Kansas, the polarizing secretary of state, Kris W. Kobach, an ardent Trump loyalist, was seeking the Republican nomination for governor after receiving the president's backing a day earlier.

Almost 2.2 million votes were cast, a 28 percent spike over the 1.7 million mark from 2002, which is believed to be the previous record.

The GOP has controlled MI for 7 ½ years, and Democrats are eager to capitalize on what is typically rough sledding for the president's party in midterm elections and the state electorate's penchant for backing the opposite party when a governor leaves due to term limits.

"There is tremendous intensity among Democratic women to participate in the election", said Bernie Porn, a pollster with EPIC-MRA in Lansing who attributed the surge to a backlash against Trump. We have done great things here. There's a growing sense of more people being left behind.

Schuette was the only candidate to get President Donald Trump's endorsement.

With almost 90 percent of precincts reporting, Schuette had roughly half of the GOP vote to Calley's quarter, with Colbeck and Hines at 13 percent and 11 percent respectively.

Democratic challenger Abdul El-Sayed received 340,363 votes, while Shri Thanedar received 199,304 votes.
