Whitmer wins Democratic nomination for MI governor

More than 90 Muslims including Deedra Abboud have entered races for public office on the local state and national levels

Schuette has long fashioned himself after Trump, and he soared in polling once receiving the endorsement of the president.

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.

At least 182 female major party nominees will run for the House, beating the record of 167 from 2016.

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

Whitmer is from MI and now lives in East Lansing with her family. Turnout figures posted online only go back to 1978.

But Whitmer wants the debates focused on different issues.

"Women leaders use our platforms and our power to make sure that we are being representative, that we are making decisions with all voices around the table", Whitmer said.

"We need to throw Bill Schuette a big retirement party come November", Whitmer told jubilant supporters in Detroit.

"We have so many elected officials with no political background".

In other races that will be closely watched this fall, Democrats nominated former national security official Elissa Slotkin and former state Rep. Gretchen Driskell for Republican-held House seats in southeastern MI.

In recent days Whitmer had leaned in to her front-runner status, refusing to mention her primary opponents on the campaign trail and admonishing campaign crowds to not take anything for granted. He's got the strong support of outgoing Gov. Rick Snyder (R), who he has loyally served for eight years. John James and Sandy Pensler squared off in a GOP primary for the chance to face Democratic Sen. 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.

"Alright, can she name any of them?" he added. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines, an obstetrician-gynecologist.

"I'm here to tell you: right here right now, come November, the red wave is coming right through MI", he said.
