Ocasio-Cortez v Ben Shapiro: Dem candidate refuses ‘catcalling’ debate offer

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El Sayed campaigns with support from New York Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio Cortez at a rally on the campus of Wayne State University

At least $23 million was spent airing broadcast TV ads across the state, including almost $17 million on governor's races won by Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette. But it is Whitmer who, by a considerable margin, will take on Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette in November.

Whitmer would not be Michigan's first female governor, nor has she made the anti-Trump resistance movement a centerpiece of her campaign, instead focusing on issues such as road repairs, school funding and water. "Detroit in on a great track, but there are so many things that need to be done".

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". "She's not promising the moon".

Steve Lauer, 75, a retired business consultant from Traverse City, said he backed Schuette - a former congressman, state senator, agriculture director and appellate judge - because of his experience and conservative beliefs.

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

Anti-Americanism Wanes in Russia After Putin-Trump Summit, Survey Says
Bolton said Thursday that Trump is "leading unprecedented action to punish Russia" for its efforts to disrupt American elections. Mr Coats said: "Our focus here today is simply to tell the American people we acknowledge the threat".

"I like balanced budgets. I like lower taxes", Lauer said.

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

Victories for Gretchen Whitmer (Michigan) and Laura Kelly (Kansas) in Democratic primaries mean 11 women will contest governorships in the November mid-term election - one more than the 1994 record. El-Sayed got a boost with a visit from U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign but it was her first run for office.

Her win was a shock, especially since incumbent Crowley spent $3.4 million on the campaign whereas Ocasio-Cortez, who touted her refusal to accept contributions from corporate political action committees, raised $310,000 and spent $207,000 through June 6.

To say that she portends both an interesting challenge and/or opportunity for the Democratic Party would be quite the understatement.

Muslim women in Denmark protest against ban on full-face veils
Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Copenhagen wearing burqas and other face veils as the law went into effect Wednesday. Those caught wearing such coverings face a fine of 1,000 kroner, while repeat offenders can face fines of 10,000 kroner.

Vice President Pence and other Republican leaders gathered at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

Colbeck, a former rocket scientist who hoped to offset lower fundraising with enthusiasm from grassroots volunteers, proposed initiatives such as eliminating the state income tax.

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

As the Daily Caller reported, "Ocasio-Cortez went on a tour around the USA endorsing candidates Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad for Michigan's 11th congressional district, Cori Bush for Missouri's 1st congressional district and James Thompson for Kansas' 4th congressional district".
