Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Bring A Joint Progressive Push To Kansas

On the Republican side, Lt. Gov. Brian Calley received 245,483 votes, Patrick Colbeck had 127,664 votes, and Jim Hines received 107,410 votes.

Strong feelings about President Donald Trump, a competitive governor's race and congressional retirements fueled what probably was record turnout for a MI primary, with more than half-million more people voting than in 2010 - the last time the governorship was open.

In a sign of Trump's looming presence in the midterms, both winners alluded to the president in their acceptance speeches. While Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's above-mentioned mantra regarding taxing the rich and cutting the military may sound great to adoring New Yorkers, I suggest that it is in direct conflict with the entrepreneurial job-creating culture of the state and the significant military presence. They cite hostility toward Trump, spending on top races and recent visits to the state from Vermont Sen. "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".

Tribune calls off $3.9 billion Sinclair media deal
Sinclair already has 173 stations around the country, including KENV in Salt Lake City, KOMO in Seattle and WKRC in Cincinnati. Sinclair wanted to purchase Tribune Media's 42 stations in 33 markets, but there was a problem .

An early supporter of Trump's candidacy and the former chair of the president's now-shut down federal commission on voter fraud, Kobach is best-known nationally for his hardline stance on illegal immigration and for advising the Trump administration on immigration, non-citizen voter registration and the 2020 Census.

Libertarian candidates were also on the primary ballot for the first time in MI history.

Though voters went with outsiders Snyder in 2010 and Trump in 2016 - the first Republican presidential victory in the state in decades - some said Tuesday that they liked Whitmer and Schuette's political experience. But though she is an experienced legislator with the support of the party's leaders, Whitmer bristled at being characterized as an "establishment Democrat".

Whitmer, the first-ever female leader of a MI state Senate caucus, beat back challenges from former Detroit health director Dr. Abdul El-Sayed and chemical-testing entrepreneur Shri Thanedar.

Girl dies after being thrown into Hillsborough River
Search and dive teams responded immediately and found the body of a young girl approximately 30 minutes after the initial report. A woman was arrested Thursday after she threw her 4-year-old daughter into a Tampa river , killing the child, police said .

OpenSecrets, an arm of the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, noted in a tweet that a $10,000 donation to Ocasio-Cortez's campaign would violate campaign-finance regulations for individual donations. She travels the state in a large bus marked with her trademark campaign slogan: "Fix The Damn Roads". Many wondered whether her debate challenge was also "catcalling". "Gender is a huge strength in this environment right now, " Whitmer said in an interview this week. "I don't know how they catcall down in Queens, but it must be weird".

Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday she will not agree to debate conservative commentator Ben Shapiro after the latter offered to give her campaign $10,000 to do so.

Ocasio-Cortez is a member of Democratic Socialists of America. Bernie Sanders, who held a rally with him on Sunday.
