MI voters weigh in on governor’s primaries

Abdul El-Sayed

About $23 million was spent airing broadcast TV ads, including almost $17 million on governor's races won by Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette.

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer addresses her supporters after winning the primary, Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, in Detroit.

Democratic challenger Abdul El-Sayed received 340,363 votes, while Shri Thanedar received 199,304 votes.

Other GOP candidates are Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, state Sen.

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. Calley, who was 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.

Whitmer will be challenged by Republican Bill Schuette and Libertarian Bill Gelineau.

Referring to President Donald Trump's bid to build a wall across the border with Mexico, she said "we in MI are going to get back to building bridges".

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". "In fact, tonight, the campaign only begins". And she touted her experience during her victory speech in Detroit.

"You've noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you", Shapiro said in his pitch. "As a child, I never once anxious about literacy or drinking water or infrastructure".

"Women leaders use our platforms and our power to make sure that we are being representative, that we are making decisions with all voices around the table", Whitmer said. "We know we deserve better and we are ready to fight, right?" "We are the home of the auto industry, the Arsenal of Democracy", the birthplace of the middle class. "I am proud of our state".
