Whitmer wins Democratic nomination for MI governor

Abdul El-Sayed

According to the unofficial results at press time from Ballotpedia, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, Schuette won the Republican race with 494,297 votes, Whitmer edged out her Democratic competitors with 585,498 votes, and Libertarian candidate Gelineau received 3,503 votes.

On the Republican side, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley received 245,483 votes, Patrick Colbeck had 127,664 votes, and Jim Hines received 107,410 votes.

In her victory speech, Whitmer noted how much she enjoys her home state. In the contests for both the governor's office and the Senate, some of the state's most Trump-like conservatives will square off against two traditional Democrats - and two women - in Whitmer and the incumbent senator, Debbie Stabenow.

"I mean, if she were to get into a discussion with somebody who asks her tough questions, I don't think she has the information or the philosophy at her disposal to actually answer those questions well", Shapiro said. "I will not be governor managing Michigan's decline into a smaller, less significant state".

Her refusal to support a "Medicare-for-all" or single-payer health care system caused friction between her and her opponents - a former Detroit health director, Abdul El-Sayed, and a business mogul, Shri Thanedar - but Whitmer said she was proud to "have the receipts from being on the front line as a progressive".

Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers when they were young and had to work multiple jobs to help their families make ends meet. He's got the strong support of outgoing Gov. Rick Snyder (R), who he has loyally served for eight years.

Though Whitmer could choose a male lieutenant governor candidate, Democrats also are fielding Sen.

"The reality is, this is President Trump's Republican party".

Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout.

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

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has declined Ben Shapiro's challenge to debate him for $10,000, likening the conservative host's offer to catcalling.

Female candidates also had victories in several other national and state primaries.
