The Democratic vote in the governor's race - which Gretchen Whitmer won - was higher than in 2002, when Jennifer Granholm advanced.

Whitmer will now go up against Michigan's attorney general, Bill Schuette, in the November general election. She beat Abdul El-Sayed, the former director of Detroit's health department, and Shri Thanedar, a wealthy chemical testing executive. You will have a Big win in November and be a tremendous Governor for the Great State of MI.

Whitmer was considered the favorite because of her political experience and broad support from organized labor and other key groups.

She worked across the aisle to help expand Medicaid coverage to more than 680,000 Michiganders, and has concrete plans to fix Michigan's roads and improve its education system.

Schuette: "I can't tell you what her name is right now".
