Voters in Ohio's 12th District, a largely suburban seat that has been loyally Republican for decades, were choosing a replacement for Pat Tiberi, a former lawmaker who resigned abruptly to join the private sector.

Crowds outside the GOP rally were not that large, much smaller than what President Trump has drawn in West Michigan. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who predicted that El-Sayed would defy polling like Sanders did in narrowly upsetting Hillary Clinton in Michigan's 2016 presidential primary. He's got the strong support of outgoing Gov. Rick Snyder (R), who he has loyally served for eight years.

Listen above to hear more about how the high turnout impacted electoral results, and the victories of Bill Schuette and Gretchen Whitmer.

"They come to the race and will tell us, 'We really believe in electing women because women will be more civil and get more done in Washington, '" Slotkin said. And yet our leaders have failed us, and that's exactly what this campaign is all about: taking care of the families of this state. Underfunding our schools, crumbling infrastructure, and water we can't drink.

"It's not totally predictive, but I think it's a very good sign that we're going to have an engaged, excited Democratic electorate turning out in November", said Dillon, whose party has struggled with turnout in past midterm elections.

Libertarian candidates were also on the primary ballot for the first time in MI history. He says the whole primary process was eye-opening. "Frankly, in past elections we didn't know what we were missing". Gelineau defeated John J. Tatar in the Libertarian contest.

While quipping that "catcalling must be very weird in Queens", Shapiro accused people "on the left" of using a "defense in which anybody who requests a discussion or a debate must be evil by their very nature". Precincts then started to run low on ballots.

In other races that will be closely watched this fall, Democrats nominated former national security official Elissa Slotkin and former state Rep. Gretchen Driskell for Republican-held House seats in southeastern MI.
