Bill Schuette and Gretchen Whitmer Win Michigan Gubernatorial Primary Races

Los Angeles California. The rising political star is on her third trip away from New York in three weeks and is

The nominations of Whitmer, a former legislative leader who will face Republican state Attorney General Bill Schuette, and Democratic state Sen.

Initially, Ocasio-Cortez ignored the debate offer.

"Women voters are coming out to the polls in droves all over the country to vote for strong, progressive women candidates, and MI was the latest example of that", Pohl said in an email.

The conservative scrutiny on Ocasio-Cortez took a odd turn this week when a popular conservative commentator and speaker, Ben Shapiro, challenged Ocasio-Cortez to a debate and offered to pay her campaign $10,000 in return. "It's time for the party to listen".

Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout.

"The future of the Democratic Party is progressive women of color with deep roots fighting for their districts", McElwee said. "You had strong, progressive women like Haley Stevens, Rashida Tlaib, Gretchen Driskell and Elissa Slotkin defeat male challengers in their primaries as well".

Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez's campaign, declined to respond to Shapiro.

McElwee said no one should be surprised that progressive leftists tend to do better in deep-blue places like the Bronx and Detroit. She's a renegade with new and exciting ideas, making her a highly attractive candidate for those fed up with the perceived complacency of the established politicians.

The tight race comes as President Trump on Monday endorsed Kobach for the position, calling him a "fantastic guy" who would "be a GREAT Governor". "Discussion and debate are not 'bad intentions, '" he wrote. In congressional terms, he was the No. 4 Democrat and a likely successor to Nancy Pelosi as the Democratic leader for the House of Representatives. Slotkin, who has raised more money than Rep. Mike Bishop, said that particularly this year, voters are looking for candidates "who will no longer just kind of check the box on voting the right way" but are asking how they will defend their rights.

Erielle Davidson, a contributor to The Federalist, said Ocasio-Cortez was willing to engage in dialogue in May, but several months later she has changed her tune.

Jess McIntosh, a Democratic consultant, argued that characterizing a Democrat like Davids as part of the political "establishment" is wrong-headed.

Without specifying which activists she's speaking with, Ocasio-Cortez kept a safe distance from a direct answer and added: "You know, especially - and this is a conversation that I'm sitting down with lots of activists in this movement on and I'm looking forward to engaging this conversation".

In May, Dave Wasserman of the non-partisan Cook Political report looked at the 65 House Democratic primaries (without incumbents) that featured at least one man and one woman.

The JD candidates are wonderfully diverse: Deedra Abboud, running for Arizona Senate, stands out as the only female candidate wearing a hijab.
