The New York Times gave Balderson 50.2 per cent, a lead of 1,754 votes in the 12th Congressional District race, with all precincts reporting.
Three progressive candidates who had gotten Ocasio-Cortez's support did win Tuesday, including former MI state representative Rashida Tlaib, who won a six-candidate primary and will run unopposed in the general election.
At least $23 million was spent airing broadcast TV ads across the state, including almost $17 million on governor's races won by Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and Republican Bill Schuette. And either Republican business executive Lena Epstein or Democratic former auto bailout chief of staff Haley Stevens will succeed a retiring congressman in suburban Detroit.
After polling closed in the four states, women broke records for gubernatorial and House nominations, according to the BBC. The number of female House nominees is at least 185 nationwide and stands at 10 in MI, which also are records. But the Secretary of State's office told voters to stay in line - everyone who was in line by 8:00 p.m. was allowed to vote. That is almost 28 percent higher than the 1.7 million who turned out in 2002, which is believed to be the previous MI midterm primary record.
Though voters went with outsiders Snyder in 2010 and Trump in 2016 - the first Republican presidential victory in the state in decades - some said Tuesday that they liked Whitmer and Schuette's political experience. Many wondered whether her debate challenge was also "catcalling". "This is a big tent and we want you to come in".
But reply she did on Thursday, and in the process advanced a jarring simile: Shapiro's very polite debate challenge, she said, was akin to catcalling. And yet our leaders have failed us, and that's exactly what this campaign is all about: taking care of the families of this state. "They told me that a message of health care, education and housing stability wouldn't be welcome here".

Donald Trump reimposes sanctions on Iran that were lifted by Barack Obama
Treasury must approve the sale of airplanes whose components are at least 10 percent American-made, like the AT72-600. French carmaker Renault, which does not sell cars in the USA , has said it will remain in Iran despite the sanctions.
But the endorsement from the former mixologist wound up more like the kiss of death. But according to reports, the race was still too close to call, in a safe Republican seat held by them since 1983. She argued that no one asked the Republicans how they'd pay for it.
Their victories, reported by The Associated Press, set up deep ideological clashes in state's most prominent general election races in November.
Crowds outside the GOP rally were not that large, much smaller than what President Trump has drawn in West Michigan.
In the frantic closing days, Whitmer campaigned with union leaders, members of the state's Democratic congressional delegation and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, who said she is the party's best chance to retake the governorship in November. He declined to name her. El-Sayed especially courted the party's more liberal, pro-Bernie Sanders wing, as did Thanedar, who spent millions of dollars of his own money on his campaign.
"I don't believe there are red states or blue states or purple states", he said during his 30-minute speech.
