Gretchen Whitmer Wins Democratic Nomination for Michigan Governor

Gretchen Whitmer Wins Democratic Nomination for Michigan Governor

"The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

Voters in Ohio's 12th District, a largely suburban seat that has been loyally Republican for decades, were choosing a replacement for Pat Tiberi, a former lawmaker who resigned abruptly to join the private sector.

The Democratic candidate for governor is a former leader of the Senate Democrats, Gretchen Whitmer.

She told the crowd that her mother was from Puerto Rico and many of her family members still live there before claiming that she and Ing were "shaped by the exact same forces" like "runaway income inequality, an unaddressed history of imperialism, and poverty". El-Sayed even won an endorsement and campaign time from progressive firebrand Bernie Sanders.

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. And she touted her experience during her victory speech in Detroit. He's got the strong support of outgoing Gov. Rick Snyder (R), who he has loyally served for eight years.

"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.

"Our leaders have failed us, but we are going to make the change we deserve in this state".

"We need a governor who knows how to get things done". That's because enough people voted for Gary Johnson - the Libertarian candidate for president - in the 2016 election.
