Backed Shuette wins GOP nod for governor in MI

Gretchen Whitmer has won the Democratic nomination for MI governor, besting two competitors to advance to the November race to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. "We need a governor who knows how to get things done, who's ready to roll up her sleeves and get to work". "She's not promising the moon". You will have a Big win in November and be a tremendous Governor for the Great State of MI. Lauer said he likes Trump but that the president's endorsement didn't sway him. 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.

Whitmer asked the supporters of El-Sayed - who was endorsed by Vermont Sen. "I like lower taxes", he said.

After toppling incumbent Joe Crowley in the NY-14 primary, socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to use her newfound publicity to secure more socialist victories, stumping for a handful of other Democratic candidates around the country.

Schneider also questioned Voatz's security claims, saying "there's no way" for outside analysts to tell if the app works properly. Schneider, president of the election integrity watchdog group Verified Voting, was even more blunt.

Whitmer, a former legislative leader, defeated chemical-testing businessman Shri Thanedar and ex-Detroit health director Abdul El-Sayed in Tuesday's primary. "It's time to make affordable all our health care so everyone gets covered".

"We must be the change we want to see in the world, and that starts with this election on Tuesday", Whitmer said at a brewery in Warren, a Detroit suburb. Calley, who is supported by Snyder but withdrew his support for Trump in 2016, touted economic gains under their watch and accused Schuette of illegally misusing his office to advance his political career and wrongly prosecuting top state officials for Flint's water crisis. He says he would cut the state income tax, like Trump reduced federal taxes.

Tlaib - who was once kicked out of a luncheon for heckling Trump - won her primary on Tuesday and could become the U.S. first Muslim congresswoman. Another Trump favorite, black Iraq War veteran and business executive John James, defeated self-funded detergent manufacturer Sandy Pensler for the chance to take on Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November, and several Democrats are vying for the congressional seat that was vacated by John Conyers in January.
