Ocasio-Cortez and fellow democratic socialist Sen.

In the frantic closing days, Whitmer campaigned with union leaders, members of the state's Democratic congressional delegation and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, who said she is the party's best chance to retake the governorship in November. She will face Attorney General Bill Schuette, who defeated Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, state Sen.

In choosing Whitmer, Michigan voters opted for a known quantity; a former state legislator, she was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in 2000. He beat out the three other candidates with about 50 percent of the vote. Following her victory, Ocasio-Cortez came to MI to campaign with El-Sayed, as did Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) have cited a recent study released by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University as proof that a single-payer system would save $2 trillion over the next ten years, but fact-checkers write their conclusions are inaccurate. Both Schuette in the governor's race and James in the Senate primary were backed by the president.

"I need you to vote for both - they are very important to our great agenda", Trump said in the call. Ignoring pleas from aides and the Republican Governors Association, the president yesterday tweeted a strong endorsement of Secretary of State Kris Kobach over the Republican incumbent.

Trump shocked the political establishment by winning MI in 2016, but recent polling has shown some of his support from independents and swing voters could be evaporating.

Greg Gutfeld and the panel on "The Five" reacted to NY democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turning down an offer from conservative author Ben Shapiro to debate him on the issues, with the added incentive of a $10,000 campaign contribution.

Female candidates also had victories in several other national and state primaries. "All she had to say here was, 'Nah.' That would've been fine, I mean she's got that prerogative".

In the 8th district, which is crucial to Democrats' hopes of retaking the House, voters selected an establishment favorite, Elissa Slotkin, as the nominee. I appreciate your spirit", she said."And to those who supported Shri, Abdul, or Bill in this race: Join us! She will face the Republican incumbent, Mike Bishop, in race now rated a tossup.
