Gretchen Whitmer wins Democratic primary for MI governor

Los Angeles California. The rising political star is on her third trip away from New York in three weeks and is

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.

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.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended her push for a "Medicare for all" health care system on Wednesday in part by citing the reduced cost of funeral expenses it would bring about. Welder lost in a competitive race, while Thompson cruised to a win. Rashida Tlaib won a race, which now means that she will be unopposed in the general election.

And the 28-year-old, Bronx-born former bartender - a graduate of Boston University - also backed progressive congressional challenger Kaniela Ing in Hawaii's 1st district Democratic congressional primary, which is on Saturday. The contentious primary season begged the question: Would the Democratic Party bank on a battle-tested liberal politician with existing inroads in the party apparatus, or veer left and elect an inexperienced but optimistic progressive in El-Sayed who proposed sweeping changes?

She has emerged on the national stage as a fierce critic of the commander-in-chief, saying she could support his impeachment for his profiting from foreign governments who stay at his DC hotel. The tax the Supreme Court referred to in upholding Obamacare as constitutional in 2012 was the penalty for not having health care collected by the IRS, better known as the individual mandate.
