Whitmer recieved the majority of party support in defeating Abdul El-Sayed and Shri Thanedar. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines, an obstetrician-gynecologist.

Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend's primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a "kindred home" because she also comes "from a place of colonized people".

"We have so many elected officials with no political background". "Michigan was the place that people used to move to from all around the world", she said, adding that at a time when some people want to build walls, "we in MI are going to get back to building bridges". "She's not promising the moon".

Steve Lauer, 75, a retired business consultant from Traverse City, said he backed Schuette - a former congressman, state senator, agriculture director and appellate judge - because of his experience and conservative beliefs.

"Indeed, folks are pumped up to vote", Clark said. The 68-year-old has served 14 years in the Kansas Senate and is the top Democrat on the budget committee.


The candidates running for governor of MI are already looking ahead to November. Following her victory, Ocasio-Cortez came to MI to campaign with El-Sayed, as did Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who predicted that El-Sayed would defy polling like Sanders did in narrowly upsetting Hillary Clinton in Michigan's 2016 presidential primary. Whitmer said she supports getting everyone covered but stopped short of embracing a single-payer plan, instead promoting her work to help expand Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of adults through former President Barack Obama's health care law while also promising to fix deteriorating roads.

Whitmer also went after Bill Schuette and the eight years MI has spent with a Republican governor in office.

The state's Democratic nomination went to State Sen.

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

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. The resignation of 27-term Democrat John Conyers - who left after allegations of sexual harassment - and the coming retirements of 18-term Democrat Sandy Levin and two-term Republican Dave Trott sparked intense fights to succeed them.
