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

Gretchen Whitmer, a former leader in the MI state Senate, captured the Democratic nomination for governor Tuesday night and will face off against the state's Republican attorney general, Bill Schuette, in a race that looms as a pivotal test of whether Democrats can reclaim power in a state President Donald Trump won two years ago.

"She was in the Legislature fighting battles when there was no hope to win", said 45-year-old John Hetzler, of Grosse Pointe Woods, who noted that he might vote Republican but only if they rejected Trump. Because when you're a jerk just to piss people off, then the natural reaction by people tends to be: 'Well, we need more restrictions on speech. And yet our leaders have failed us, and that's exactly what this campaign is all about: taking care of the families of this state. They've pushed anti-choice. They've cut us out of the debate about everything from our health care to our water.

But the endorsement from the former mixologist wound up more like the kiss of death.

In other races that will be closely watched this fall, Democrats nominated former national security official Elissa Slotkin and former state Rep. Gretchen Driskell for Republican-held House seats in southeastern MI.

She said that established Democrats are "feverishly working" on their own re-elections, but neglecting to support rising younger campaigns is why Republicans are winning. "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.
