Libertarians also had a choice for governor on the primary ticket, for the first time in Michigan's history. "A 90 second break and then we're gonna go towards - a 90 day sprint towards November".

Even before all the polls had closed in Northern Michigan, news outlets were calling it for the state Attorney General.

"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. Supporters of the Donald Trump administration said they were excited Pence made a stop in West Michigan. An advantage candidate Brian Calley acknowledged in his concession video.

"It's a big warning sign for Republicans", said Michigan Democratic Party Chairman Brandon Dillon.

As the Washington Post put it in its headline about Tuesday: "Democratic Party's liberal insurgency hits a wall in Midwest primaries". In the contests for both the governor's office and the Senate, some of the state's most Trump-like conservatives will square off against two traditional Democrats - and two women - in Whitmer and the incumbent senator, Debbie Stabenow.

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. She kept showing up for debates. "And Whitmer was one of the architects of the policies that resulted in the lost decade". He credited Republican leaders for helping the state "get off the mat" after a decade-long downturn and said Whitmer would "take us back to a time of shuttered industries, dashed dreams and higher taxes".

Most of the candidates she has traveled to support are backed by a political action committee called Justice Democrats, which was started by organizers of Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign.

"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.

Throughout her campaign, Whitmer has argued that she's a progressive with a track record.

"The upset she showed in New York City is exactly what's going to happen in Kansas", Sanders predicted at the beginning of his speech.

Ingraham said that she wanted to make it clear that "my concern will continue to remain with the families who have suffered the tragic results of illegal immigration, the children put in risky and unfair situations at the border, and all those border agents around the country who work to keep our country safe".

Whether Democrats get the message - that their electoral fortunes might not lie with democratic socialists or communist sympathizers who advocate "free" college - remains to be seen.

Whitmer also went after Bill Schuette and the eight years MI has spent with a Republican governor in office.
