Schuette - an ally of President Donald Trump - easily defeated Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, conservative state Sen.

On the Democrats' side, Gretchen Whitmer beat out newcomer Abdul El-Sayed.

Republicans say they expected higher Democratic turnout. He also had a message for those who supported the other candidates.

"We have so many elected officials with no political background". But the Secretary of State's office told voters to stay in line - everyone who was in line by 8:00 p.m. was allowed to vote. And she touted her experience during her victory speech in Detroit.

"We need a governor who can get things done and is ready to roll up her sleeves and get things done", she said.
