Dixon wins Michigan GOP governor primary, to face Whitmer
Dixon was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and the family of former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos
Businesswoman and conservative commentator Tudor Dixon has won the Republican primary for Michigan governor.
The win Tuesday sets up a tough general election race against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who has millions in her campaign fund. Dixon defeated four male candidates in a race between little-known Republicans.
Dixon was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and the family of former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, as well as the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and several anti-abortion organizations.
The mother of four made education a top issue of her campaign, saying she wants to keep drag queens and talk of sex and gender out of elementary schools. She opposes abortion, except to save the life of the mother.
