Radio personality and Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon won her state’s GOP primary Tuesday, according to multiple pollsters, and will face Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in November.
Dixon will face Governor Whitmer on November 8 in the Michigan primary. Dixon defeated four other candidates, including businessman Ryan Kelley, chiropractor Garrett Soldano, pastor Ralph Rebandt and business owner Kevin Rinke.

Former President Donald Trump endorsed Dixon just days before the July 29 election statement stating that “the Great State of Michigan is being destroyed by Radical Left Democrats.”
“Tudor Dixon is a conservative warrior who built an impressive career in the steel industry while working with her wonderful father, who now proudly watches over her,” Trump wrote. “She raised a beautiful family and is ready to save Michigan. They are pro-God, pro-Guns and pro-Freedom and they will not stop it!”
The former radio host, who worked at Michigan Steel, was also endorsed by former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her family, according to campaign. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former governor John Engler also endorsed Dixon.
Dixon made education a central part of her platform, proposing a ““Prents Right To Know Act” on January 18 which would force any federally funded school to post all curriculum materials, including textbook titles, library book titles, course syllabi, and the district’s diversity, equity and inclusion programs, and contracts on its website for the community to see. The plan, Dixon says, will “increase transparency and accountability” in K-12 schools across Michigan.
“I’m going to make sure that schools are transparent about what they think is appropriate for kids to learn, and if schools feel that defaming America is appropriate, then they need to own it,” Dixon said in the YouTube video. “If a school wants to hire a DEI consultant at $25,000 an hour for a discussion, let the community have that discussion, then they can hold their school accountable.”
