Michigan Democrats hoping for pink and blue wave in November

Whitmer will face Republican Bill Schuette in November. It could triple, to six, if the Democrats can pick up Republican-leaning seats in November.

Republican nominee Bill Schuette and Democratic nominee Gretchen Whitmer - who won their respective parties' nominees Tuesday - are both calling for a minimum of three debates. And either Republican business executive Lena Epstein or Democratic former auto bailout chief of staff Haley Stevens will succeed a retiring congressman in suburban Detroit. Laura Kelly of Kansas brought the number of female gubernatorial nominees this year to 11, breaking the previous record of 10, according to the Gender Watch 2018, a project of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation. Turnout figures posted online only go back to 1978. Whitmer said she supports getting everyone covered but stopped short of embracing a single-payer plan, instead promoting her work to help expand Medicaid to hundreds of thousands of adults through former President Barack Obama's health care law while also promising to fix deteriorating roads.

"Our leaders have failed us, but we are going to make the change we deserve in this state". Republican leaders in the state worry that Kobach, who is best known for supporting voting restrictions and strenuously opposing immigration, could put the office at risk in the general election.

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

By 10 p.m. Tuesday, with most of the votes counted, the Republican candidate, state Sen. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines. "The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

And in Missouri, Republicans nominated Josh Hawley, the state attorney general, as their challenger against Sen.

"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.
