The ad then goes on to feature some of Ocasio-Cortez's most cringeworthy recent moments, including when she admitted she lacks sufficient knowledge to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and when she pledged to "flip this seat red in November" during a campaign stop in Kansas.

The candidates running for governor of MI are already looking ahead to November.

"We'll take about a 90 second pivot".

Bill Schuette beat out fellow Republicans, Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley, State Senator Patrick Colbeck, and Saginaw doctor, Jim Hines.

Despite this, U.S. news outlets have not called the contest yet.

She also claims her message is resonating with female voters in the state.

China to impose additional tariffs on $16B worth of USA goods
The U.S. levied 25 per cent duties on US$34 billion in Chinese goods on July 6 , prompting swift in-kind retaliation from Beijing. The trade balance between the two countries, which is at the center of the tariffs tussle, continued to be in favor of China.

Schuette has long fashioned himself after Trump, and he soared in polling once receiving the endorsement of the president.

On the Republican side, the results again reinforced how Trump has refashioned the party in his own image while playing an influential role in many primary races. His chosen candidates win Republican primaries.

"While the entire country wants to forget that history, we're not allowed to", she said.

In his victory speech, Schuette thanked all his supporters. Ocasio-Cortez, who burst onto the national scene when she upset Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in the Democratic primary in June, deflected by saying the current system causes sticker shock. Both Shri Thanedar and Abdul El Sayed positioned themselves as progressives.

She said even Republican-leaning women in Oakland County north of Detroit are volunteering for her campaign. "Michigan was the place that people used to move to from all around the world", she said, adding that at a time when some people want to build walls, "we in MI are going to get back to building bridges". Her win sets up a rematch with Rep. Tim Walberg, a Republican who won by nearly 15 points two years ago. "As a child, I never once anxious about literacy or drinking water or infrastructure". We know we deserve better and we are ready to fight.

Bill Hall is the chair of the Michigan Libertarian party. Some Oakland precincts ran out of ballots, possibly due to higher-than-expected turnout. But the Secretary of State's office told voters to stay in line - everyone who was in line by 8:00 p.m. was allowed to vote.
