Whitmer, a former legislative leader, defeated chemical-testing businessman Shri Thanedar and ex-Detroit health director Abdul El-Sayed in Tuesday's primary.

Whitmer will be on the ballot for governor in November. Rashida Tlaib won a race, which now means that she will be unopposed in the general election.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican candidate for governor, speaks during a campaign stop in Lansing, Mich., July 31, 2018. You will have a Big win in November and be a tremendous Governor for the Great State of MI. She was considered the favorite due to her political experience and broad support from organized labor and other key groups.

Queens congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's endorsed candidates won two of six primaries held Tuesday - a solid batting average in baseball but in politics, not so much.

Shapiro offered to give her congressional campaign-or a charity-$10,000 in exchange for an hour-long debate, noting Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez said she represents the "future" of the party. "Michigan is one of the DGA's top targets for pickup this cycle, and Gretchen is a terrific candidate". She worked across the aisle to help expand Medicaid coverage to more than 680,000 Michiganders, and has concrete plans to fix Michigan's roads and improve its education system.

Gretchen Whitmer hasn't given much of a hint on who her running mate might be, however, there are few names floating around.

"When it comes to tax cuts for billionaires and unlimited war, we seem to be able to invent that money very easily", she said, "And to me, it belies a lack of moral priority that people have right now, especially the Republican Party".
