  • Abdul El Sayed has been endorsed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

"Gretchen Whitmer is a tough, determined, and proven leader, who will be an unrelenting champion for our middle class as the next Governor of Michigan", Michigan Democratic Party Chair Brandon Dillon said in a statement.

Thanedar, who spent more than $11 million of his own money on the race, surged in public polls as El-Sayed struggled to raise money and Whitmer replaced her campaign manager. 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?
