Trump-endorsed Tudor Dixon won her GOP gubernatorial primary Tuesday night by at least 19 points —and she plans on defeating Gretchen Whitmer in November and taking Michigan back.
“It was a tough primary, but we got through it,” said Dixon, a political commentator before running for office.
“At the end, the Democrats threw in another $2 million to go up against me. They had attack ads against me running over the last seven days [before primary day], and they still couldn’t beat me. So, here we are. We’re ready to go through and face Gretchen Whitmer [in November].”
“We’re going to bring [Michigan] back by focusing on families and making sure this is the place where everyone wants to live, work and play,” said Dixon.
Dixon thanked her supporters in a statement on Twitter.
“Thank you Michigan! We will take the fight to Gretchen Whitmer for our children, our grandparents, our business owners, and every single Michigander affected by her disastrous policies. Join us!”

Dixon received a boost in support when former President Donald Trump officially endorsed her, calling her a “conservative warrior,” adding Dixon “will stand up to the radical left as they try to indoctrinate our children and is ready to take on one of the worst governors in the nation, Gretchen Whitmer, who is trying to destroy Michigan and our country.”
“It is a great honor to receive President Trump’s endorsement and have the strength of our campaign to defeat Gretchen Whitmer further affirmed by his support,” Dixon said of the endorsement. “Our vision for a family-friendly Michigan clearly resonates with voters. It is the reason our broad coalition is growing.”
Dixon will take on Gretchen Whitmer in the November midterm elections.
