Vice President Mike Pence, who sought to unify Republicans at a post-primary rally in Grand Rapids, said the "blue wall" crumbled in MI with Trump's 2016 win - the first for a GOP presidential nominee in decades. Whitmer recieved the majority of party support in defeating Abdul El-Sayed and Shri Thanedar.

Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend's primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a "kindred home" because she also comes "from a place of colonized people".

"Indeed, folks are pumped up to vote", Clark said.

The 58-year-old Williams says she voted for Whitmer because the former Senate minority leader "has actually governed and knows what governing means". El-Sayed got a boost with a visit from U.S. Sen. El-Sayed even won an endorsement and campaign time from progressive firebrand Bernie Sanders.

Richard Fowler said Ocasio-Cortez' purported gaffes have been saturating the media as of late and said that on the right, "you could run Corey Stewart memes all day" - referring to the Trump-endorsed conservative Republican county chairman running against Sen. Calley, who was supported by Snyder but withdrew his support for Trump in 2016, touted economic gains under their watch and accused Schuette of illegally misusing his office to advance his political career and wrongly prosecuting top state officials for Flint's water crisis. Hines self-funded his campaign with $2.7 million, hoping voters would elect another outsider like they did in backing Snyder in 2010. The resignation of 27-term Democrat John Conyers - who left after allegations of sexual harassment - and the coming retirements of 18-term Democrat Sandy Levin and two-term Republican Dave Trott sparked intense fights to succeed them.
