Gretchen Whitmer Handily Wins Michigan's Democratic Gubernatorial Primary

Abdul El-Sayed

Whitmer, the first-ever female leader of a MI state Senate caucus, beat back challenges from former Detroit health director Dr. Abdul El-Sayed and chemical-testing entrepreneur Shri Thanedar.

Republican nominee Bill Schuette and Democratic nominee Gretchen Whitmer - who won their respective parties' nominees Tuesday - are both calling for a minimum of three debates. But state Attorney General Bill Schuette secured the endorsement of President Trump, largely because he supported him after the "Access Hollywood" tape broke in October 2016 when Calley would not.

Pence will be joined by Schuette as well as Republican candidates for U.S. Senate.

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. He also had a message for those who supported the other candidates.

Richard Fowler said Ocasio-Cortez' purported gaffes have been saturating the media as of late and said that on the right, "you could run Corey Stewart memes all day" - referring to the Trump-endorsed conservative Republican county chairman running against Sen.

Judge Threatens Sessions Over Two Deportations
Asylum seekers previously had to show that the government in their native country was "unable or unwilling" to protect them. Recently, Sessions changed the policy on allowing victims of domestic abuse and gang violence to qualify for asylum.

Throughout her campaign, Whitmer has argued that she's a progressive with a track record.

In her victory speech, Whitmer noted how much she enjoys her home state. "But with our ground game and our fundraising capabilities, we feel like if we pack our raingear - if we come prepared - we're going to be just fine", said state GOP spokeswoman Sarah Anderson.

In the Libertarian race, John Tatar received 2,470 votes.

"It's not totally predictive, but I think it's a very good sign that we're going to have an engaged, excited Democratic electorate turning out in November", said Dillon, whose party has struggled with turnout in past midterm elections.

"They come to the race and will tell us, 'We really believe in electing women because women will be more civil and get more done in Washington, '" Slotkin said.
