Conservative commentator Tudor Dixon, who was endorsed by Donald Trump, has won the Republican Primary and the right to face incumbent Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this coming November.
This marks the first time in state history that two women will square off in Michigan’s gubernatorial race. Aided by the funding of the DeVos family, Dixon is known for her denial of the 2020 Presidential election results as well as her support of a total ban on abortion.
Tudor won the primary with 40.5 % of the vote, with the runner-up Kevin Rinke garnering 21.7%.
In the 3rd Congressional District Republican Primary, John Gibbs beat out incumbent Rep. Peter Meijer, winning by about 400 votes. Meijer was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump.
Gibbs will face off against Democratic challenger Hilary Scholten in November in the general election.
In the 8th District Republican Primary, Paul Junge won with over 50% of the vote in his favor.
In an even more lopsided contest in the 11th District Democratic Primary, Haley Stevens won with 60% of the vote.
On the Republican side of the 11th district, Mark Ambrose took the victory with 70.5% of the votes.
For the Democratic Primary in the 12th District, Rashida Tlaib won with 40,000 more votes than the second place Janice Winfrey.
