Egyptian-American Loses Race for 'Governor Position' in MI

Egyptian-American Loses Race for 'Governor Position' in MI

Strong feelings about President Donald Trump, a competitive governor's race and congressional retirements fueled what probably was a record MI primary turnout, with more than half-million more people voting than in 2010 - the last time the governorship was open.

Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette are considered the favorites for governor. Turnout figures posted online only go back to 1978.

Voters on Tuesday are choosing would-be successors to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who can not run again due to term limits, and a GOP nominee to face third-term Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in November, and several Democrats were vying for the congressional seat that was vacated by John Conyers.

Throughout her campaign, Whitmer has argued that she's a progressive with a track record. And yet our leaders have failed us, and that's exactly what this campaign is all about: taking care of the families of this state.

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

Dan Bongino added that there is a "serious question" as to whether someone can successfully hold a debate with a leftist without being derogatorily called an "-phobe" or a "-ist". "So electing more women empowers those voices and informs better decision-making". 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. 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.

Schuette was the only candidate to get President Donald Trump's endorsement.

"We need a governor who knows how to get things done".

President Trump endorsed Schuette. of MI, for governor, and on Monday also endorsed Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach for that state's GOP primary.

"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.
