Whitmer wins Democratic nomination for MI governor

Los Angeles California. The rising political star is on her third trip away from New York in three weeks and is

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. Debbie Stabenow, who is seeking a fourth term.

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.

Their victories, reported by The Associated Press, set up deep ideological clashes in state's most prominent general election races in November.

Whitmer will be challenged by Republican Bill Schuette and Libertarian Bill Gelineau.

"Why don't we talk about the cost of reduced productivity because of people who need to go on disability, because of people who are not able to participate in our economy because they are having issues like diabetes or they don't have access to the health care that they need?" she added.

Mr. Shapiro said he was "excited" that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who won her primary in NY for a House seat, has been framed as the future of the Democratic Party. "Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I am willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special". Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines.

"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.

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.

"I like balanced budgets".

"It's catcalling because, I guess, if I suggest that I want to have a conversation, I'm demanding a response", he said.

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.

With the gubernatorial and Senate victors being declared not long after the closure of all polls, attention turned to several closely watched House battles where a number of female candidates were competing. And either Republican business executive Lena Epstein or Democratic former auto bailout chief of staff Haley Stevens will succeed a retiring congressman in suburban Detroit.
