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

India vs England 2nd Test Day 1 live updates
With Jasprit Bumrah ruled out, India are expected to retain the pace trio of Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, and Mohammed Shami. England lead the five-match series 1-0 after completing a thrilling 31-run victory at Edgbaston last week in Birmingham.

Whitmer will now go up against Michigan's attorney general, Bill Schuette, in the November general election. Patrick Colbeck and Dr. Jim Hines in the GOP primary. She was considered the favorite due to her political experience and broad support from organized labor and other key groups.

"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?
