Bill Schuette and Gretchen Whitmer Win Michigan Gubernatorial Primary Races

Abdul El Sayed has been endorsed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Meanwhile socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is losing big, too.

Schuette, 64, received congratulatory calls from Trump and Vice President Mike Pence after he beat Lt. Gov. Brian Calley - a close partner with Snyder - conservative state Sen.

In the aftermath, Whitmer communications director Zack Pohl shared his frustration with a pre-election narrative that, he argued, understated his candidate's progressive record and offered simplistic assumptions about where the Democratic energy resides. Laura Kelly, who defeated four other candidates in the primary. "It wasn't just Gretchen either". Another three women were leading in close primary contests.

By way of explanation, Ocasio-Cortez pointed to the pocketbook.

In other forums, such as the Jewish Community Relations Council, I have stated that she should come forward and at least indicate a desire to open her mind to the reasons for Israel's defensive actions.

Whitmer would not be Michigan's first female governor, nor has she made the anti-Trump resistance movement a centerpiece of her campaign, instead focusing on issues such as road repairs, school funding and water.

As the Daily Caller reported, "Ocasio-Cortez went on a tour around the US endorsing candidates Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad for Michigan's 11th congressional district, Cori Bush for Missouri's 1st congressional district and James Thompson for Kansas' 4th congressional district". She campaigned relentlessly in the district, while Crowley spent more time in Washington.




"He, as a progressive, alone turned that seat from an impossible race to a flippable district", she said. "They told me I wouldn't be welcome here".

It's a message she had occasion to repeat on Wednesday - and did, in a tweet: "Wins in the short-term are important milemarkers and necessary to building power", she wrote.

"Whatever differences we may have, it is my hope starting tonight that we can unite in our common goals - more jobs, greater growth and bigger paychecks for MI families", he told backers in his hometown of Midland.

And then it was Shapiro's turn to get weird: He advanced his Orthodox Judaism as a defense against intimations that he was harassing her, when "challenging you to a debate is not harassment" would have worked just fine.

Four underdog candidates whom she stumped for in recent weeks lost in Democratic primaries in Michigan, Kansas and Missouri.

The "flyover" states, including Colorado, have seldom merited much attention, a fact reflecting a bias that clearly overshadowed the reality of this past presidential election.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez ran as an avowed Democratic Socialist with a platform that included such items as Medicare for all, free education, the abolishment of ICE, guaranteed jobs and wages, and affordable housing for everyone. She will be one of two DSA members, alongside Ocasio-Cortez, assuming the latter prevails in the fall.
