LANSING, Mich. – Tudor Dixon has won Michigan’s Republican gubernatorial race, according to The Associated Press.

On Friday, Dixon received a late endorsement from former President Donald Trump. In the past, she has also received endorsements from well-known names in Michigan politics, such as the family of former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

Dixon is a staunch opponent of abortion rights and recently made headlines after responding to a question about the hypothetical rape of a 14-year-old girl by a family member as a “perfect example” of why abortion should be banned.

Before that, Dixon made schools and education the main issues of his campaign. She has also been heavily critical of current governor Gretchen Whitmer’s early lockdown policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lately, Dixon has seen attacks directed at her from both sides of the aisle. Her Republican rivals have pushed back on her support from the DeVos family and other political figures. Meanwhile, the Democratic Governors Association has also been campaigning against Dixon, having recently held a $2 million campaign against her.

Dixon is a businesswoman and former conservative media anchor, and will next face incumbent Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a well-funded Democrat.
