Whitmer, Schuette win governor nominations

  • Abdul El Sayed has been endorsed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Whitmer also went after Bill Schuette and the eight years MI has spent with a Republican governor in office.

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.

In her victory speech, Whitmer noted how much she enjoys her home state. "You have to understand how things work to get things done", said Karen Rozanski, 67, of St. Clair Shores, who voted for Whitmer. "I am proud of our state". Most GOP strategists believe that Kobach, who served on Trump's short-lived voter fraud panel, is so polarizing that he could lose to a Democrat in the fall - even in a state as red as Kansas. Voters were also choosing primary candidates in Missouri and Washington.

Whitmer, a former legislative leader, defeated chemical-testing businessman Shri Thanedar and ex-Detroit health director Abdul El-Sayed in Tuesday's primary. Ignoring pleas from aides and the Republican Governors Association, the president yesterday tweeted a strong endorsement of Secretary of State Kris Kobach over the Republican incumbent. "Americans have the sticker shock of health care as it is, and what we're also not talking about is why aren't we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can't afford access to health care?"

Vice President Pence and other Republican leaders gathered at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.




Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout.

The conservative host referenced Ocasio-Cortez's comments that Republicans aren't willing to debate, and said he wanted to ask her to "name an industry you would not nationalize; which ones should the government not run and why?".

Whitmer would not be Michigan's first female governor, nor has she made the anti-Trump resistance movement a centerpiece of her campaign, instead focusing on issues such as road repairs, school funding and water.

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.

"I hope to earn your support as we move forward", Schuette said.
