Fred Woodhams, a spokesman for the MI secretary of state's office, said Tuesday's turnout was "drastically higher" than in past primaries, approaching 2.2 million voters.

She beat veteran Representative Joe Crowley (D-NY) in the primary, prompting the Democratic National Committee's Tom Perez to describe the former Bernie Sanders campaign organizer as "the future" of the Democratic party.

In the frantic closing days, Whitmer campaigned with union leaders, members of the state's Democratic congressional delegation and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, who said she is the party's best chance to retake the governorship in November. Turnout figures posted online only go back to 1978.

Sheryl Williams of Traverse City says Gretchen Whitmer's experience makes her the best choice for the Democratic nomination for MI governor. The resignation of 27-term Democrat John Conyers - who left after allegations of sexual harassment - and the coming retirements of 18-term Democrat Sandy Levin and two-term Republican Dave Trott sparked intense fights to succeed them.

"It turned into her claiming victim status", Shapiro said earlier on Fox News. "When you've got a Legislature that's so male, all the leaders making decisions around our health care being white males. you get the policies that we have here in MI".

She said even Republican-leaning women in Oakland County north of Detroit are volunteering for her campaign.

"We need a governor who can get things done and is ready to roll up her sleeves and get things done", she said. Pence and President Donald Trump both supported Schuette during the primary.

By 10 p.m. Tuesday, with most of the votes counted, the Republican candidate, state Sen.

"Alright, can she name any of them?" he added.

In Kansas, Republicans were also hurtling to the end of a bruising primary for governor: Jeff Colyer, the Republican incumbent, appeared at dire risk of losing the GOP nomination to Kris Kobach, a hard-right state official whom Trump endorsed on Monday.

"I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues", Mr. Shapiro said.
