As for the Democratic primary, Gretchen Whitmer, a former legislative leader, won the party's nomination in the gubernatorial race.

Whitmer will be on the ballot for governor in November.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette has won the Republican nomination for MI governor, defeating three other candidates vying to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. Rick Snyder. You will have a Big win in November and be a tremendous Governor for the Great State of MI. She beat Abdul El-Sayed, the former director of Detroit's health department, and Shri Thanedar, a wealthy chemical testing executive.

Whitmer was considered the favorite because of her political experience and broad support from organized labor and other key groups. But her proposed policies were reliably more moderate than those of her competitors, who pushed for a single-payer healthcare system, tuition-free four-year college for most Michiganders and a $15 minimum wage.

Michigan Democratic congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib on Thursday said she is not fully sold on the predictions of a "blue wave" during the upcoming midterm elections. Gretchen Whitmer knows how to get things done to make a difference in people's lives. "It's time to repeal the retirement tax and yes, to fix the damn roads".

"When it comes to tax cuts for billionaires and unlimited war, we seem to be able to invent that money very easily", she said, "And to me, it belies a lack of moral priority that people have right now, especially the Republican Party".

Whitmer ran on Democratic planks such as shutting down the Enbridge Line 5 pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac, increasing funding for education and infrastructure improvements.
