Bill Schuette and Gretchen Whitmer Win Michigan Gubernatorial Primary Races

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El Sayed campaigns with support from New York Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio Cortez at a rally on the campus of Wayne State University

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer addresses her supporters after winning the primary, Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, in Detroit. Troy Balderson, and the Democrat, Danny O'Connor, were running nearly even.

State Attorney General William "Bill" Schuette, Gretchen Whitmer and Bill Gelineau won their respective primaries August 7 to compete against each other for the governor seat November 6. The number of female House nominees is at least 185 nationwide and stands at 10 in MI, which also are records.

He recalled his own run for Congressional office as a Republican for a House district in the Maryland panhandle as well as for U.S. Senate several years ago.

Almost 2.2 million votes were cast, a 28 percent spike over the 1.7 million in 2002. Turnout numbers posted online only go back 40 years.

She said earlier this week that "there wasn't a single mom" consulted when the decision was made to switch Flint's water source, which led to lead contamination that has been blamed primarily on Republican Gov. Rick Snyder's administration. "But with our ground game and our fundraising capabilities, we feel like if we pack our raingear - if we come prepared - we're going to be just fine", said state GOP spokeswoman Sarah Anderson.

"Thanks to Republican leadership, MI is thriving".

4 cases of West Nile virus in Minnesota — CDC
Cases generally tend to spike during the summer and fall months, between June and September, when activity is the most common. The illness can sometimes be fatal with about one out of 150 infected people dying from complications due to the virus.

"We have so many elected officials with no political background. The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers when they were young and had to work multiple jobs to help their families make ends meet. But the Secretary of State's office told voters to stay in line - everyone who was in line by 8:00 p.m. was allowed to vote.

"We are protesting against Vice President Pence because we do not agree with some of the things he agrees with", says one protester.

And in Missouri, Republicans nominated Josh Hawley, the state attorney general, as their challenger against Sen. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines.

"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.
