  • Texas Governor Greg Abbott Dismisses Blue Wave ‘Texas is Going to Stay Red

Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bill Schuette, speaks to members of the media ahead of his election day party at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich., Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018.

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has declined Ben Shapiro's challenge to debate him for $10,000, likening the conservative host's offer to catcalling.

She's asking for one focused on education and skills training in Detroit, another focused on clean water in Flint and a third on expanding access to affordable health care in Grand Rapids.

Call it Michigan's pink and blue wave.

Schuette, like Kobach, was also endorsed by Trump for governor.

Whitmer is from MI and now lives in East Lansing with her family. Another three women were leading in close primary contests. "Whatever differences we may have, it is my hope, starting tonight, we can unite in our common goal: more jobs, greater growth and bigger paychecks for MI families. So electing more women empowers those voices and informs better decision-making".

He has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid and he has previously stated that he would like to go back to Madrid due to family reasons.

Female candidates also had victories in several other national and state primaries. Slotkin, who has raised more money than Rep. Mike Bishop, said that particularly this year, voters are looking for candidates "who will no longer just kind of check the box on voting the right way" but are asking how they will defend their rights.

There will be two all-female races in Washington state.

In recent days Whitmer had leaned in to her front-runner status, refusing to mention her primary opponents on the campaign trail and admonishing campaign crowds to not take anything for granted. John James and Sandy Pensler squared off in a GOP primary for the chance to face Democratic Sen.

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. Party activists will choose attorney general and secretary of state nominees at a convention in late August, and Schuette said Wednesday his running mate will be a woman.

"Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I'm really excited that you've been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues".
