Republican Tudor Dixon says she influenced Whitmer to concede in the governor’s race. Dixon released a statement on Wednesday morning saying she called Governor Whitmer that morning to concede and wished her well. Michigan’s future success didn’t rest in elected officials or government, but all of them. It was required for all of them to help their children read, support law enforcement, and grow their economy.
Governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer won the primary election against Tudor Dixon, and after winning reelection, she addressed her proponents from MotorCity Casino on Wednesday morning. During the speech, she said, “Holding this office has been the honor of my life, and I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity for the last four years.”
Since 2018 Whitmer has been the governor of Michigan, and her victory in the reelection grabbed her place as governor for the second term again. During the speech, she thanked everyone, including the campaign team, local leaders, and college students, for waiting hours to cast a vote.
She promised Michigan people that she would keep increasing Michigan’s economy, repulsing retirement tax for seniors, protecting Great Lakes, and keep “fighting like hell” to safeguard fundamental rights such as abortion.
“Building a Michigan where everyone can get ahead is what really matters right now, more than ever,” Whitmer said. “We are going to move this state forward, and I’m excited for all the work we’re going to do together.”
After the result was declared, Republican Tudor Dixon said she didn’t agree with the result and was not ready to accept the results that Governor Gretchen Whitmer won re-election. She also mentioned that her campaign wouldn’t sleep until every ballot counted.
Gretchen Whitmer secured 51% of the votes, whereas Tudor Dixon could secure only 46.6% of the votes.
While hosting an event in Grand Rapids, she told the crowd that her campaign wasn’t conceding yet.
“This race is going to be too close to call, despite what FOX thinks,” Dixon said. “The results continue to trickle in; the major counties have a very, very long way to go.”
