Major Ocasio-Cortez-endorsed candidates lose primaries

More than 90 Muslims including Deedra Abboud have entered races for public office on the local state and national levels

The victor will replace term-limited Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican. After Tuesday's primary result, which followed much campaigning by Ocasio-Cortez and kindred spirit, Bernie Sanders, the tides do not seem to be in their favor.

Whitmer, a former legislative leader, defeated chemical-testing businessman Shri Thanedar and ex-Detroit health director Abdul El-Sayed.

She'll face state Attorney General Bill Schuette (R) in November. She was considered the favorite due to her political experience and broad support from organized labor and other key groups.

Thanedar, who spent more than $11 million of his own money on the race, surged in public polls as El-Sayed struggled to raise money and Whitmer replaced her campaign manager.

British Open sends the wrong Tommy Fleetwood large sum of prize money
And the latter Fleetwood's account is apparently where the former Fleetwood's British Open winnings were deposited. However, Fleetwood didn't immediately receive that money because, well, another man named Thomas Fleetwood did.

It was a high-stakes primary for a party that's hoping to ride a "blue wave" back to power in Lansing and is still grappling with internal fault lines exposed during the 2016 presidential election.

Abdul El-Sayed from MI, who was on the ticket for governor, fell 20 percentage points behind his Democratic competition, even with both Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez coming out to stump for him.

Ocasio-Cortez stunned Democrats by upsetting incumbent and Queens party boss Joe Crowley - the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House - in the primary in the 14th congressional district. "It's time to repeal the retirement tax and yes, to fix the damn roads". "We're excited that she'll be leading the fight this election to bring the change needed in Lansing". "She's relentless when it comes to finding a solution. Gretchen Whitmer is one of the great Democratic female candidates who will help make 2018 the year of the woman governor".
