Ben Shapiro Offers $10K (Illegally) for Ocasio-Cortez Debate

Strong feelings about President Donald Trump, a competitive governor's race and congressional retirements fueled what probably was record turnout for a MI primary, with more than half-million more people voting than in 2010 - the last time the governorship was open.

In a video posted Wednesday, in which Shapiro mocked Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez for labeling the NY congressional candidate the "future of the Democratic Party", he offered to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted an offer to debate him.

The 58-year-old Williams says she voted for Whitmer because the former Senate minority leader "has actually governed and knows what governing means". Turnout numbers posted online only go back 40 years. About $23 million was spent airing broadcast TV ads, including almost $17 million on governor's races won by Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette. The resignation of 27-term Democrat John Conyers - who left after allegations of sexual harassment - and the coming retirements of 18-term Democrat Sandy Levin and two-term Republican Dave Trott sparked intense fights to succeed them.

However, "it turned into her invoking victim status", he said.

"It's a big warning sign for Republicans", said Michigan Democratic Party Chairman Brandon Dillon.

The Vice President will be a special guest at a Republican Unity Rally at 6:30 p.m.in Grand Rapids.

Turkey's exceptionally large current account deficit makes the country's potential to fall into a severe debt crisis even greater. Late on Friday, the rand was trading at more than R14 to the dollar, its worst point since a credit downgrade in November.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers when they were young and had to work multiple jobs to help their families make ends meet.

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

Referring to President Donald Trump's bid to build a wall across the border with Mexico, she said "we in MI are going to get back to building bridges".

Vice President Mike Pence, who sought to unify Republicans at a post-primary rally in Grand Rapids, said the "blue wall" crumbled in MI with Trump's 2016 win - the first for a GOP presidential nominee in decades. Party activists will choose attorney general and secretary of state nominees at a convention in late August, and Schuette said Wednesday his running mate will be a woman.

"I'm here to tell you: right here right now, come November, the red wave is coming right through MI", he said.
