The candidates running for governor of MI are already looking ahead to November.

Schuette and Whitmer - both veteran officeholders - easily bested their opponents in Tuesday's primary to set up their head-to-head race to succeed Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who reached his term limit.

Call it Michigan's pink and blue wave.

MI voters will see the state's first all-female ticket in November after women won primary elections in two key races on Tuesday.

In Kansas, the polarizing secretary of state, Kris W. Kobach, an ardent Trump loyalist, was seeking the Republican nomination for governor after receiving the president's backing a day earlier.

A record number of women have won major party nominations for governorships and seats in the House of Representatives this year - a month before the United States primary season gets officially over.

The outcome could indicate whether Democrats have a chance to overturn the Republican majority in the House in November.

"There is tremendous intensity among Democratic women to participate in the election", said Bernie Porn, a pollster with EPIC-MRA in Lansing who attributed the surge to a backlash against Trump.

Gretchen Whitmer, a former leader in the MI state Senate, captured the Democratic nomination for governor Tuesday night and will face off against the state's Republican attorney general, Bill Schuette, in a race that looms as a pivotal test of whether Democrats can reclaim power in a state President Donald Trump won two years ago.

At least 182 female major party nominees will run for the House, beating the record of 167 from 2016. That is almost 28 percent higher than the 1.7 million who turned out in 2002, which is believed to be the previous MI midterm primary record. Turnout numbers posted online only go back 40 years.

"Women leaders use our platforms and our power to make sure that we are being representative, that we are making decisions with all voices around the table", Whitmer said.

"Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I'm willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special", he continued. They've pushed anti-choice. They've cut us out of the debate about everything from our health care to our water.
