The three democrats running for Michigan governor squared off in their first televised debate Wednesday night.

Gretchen Whitmer, Shri Thanedar and Abdul El-Sayed debated for an hour at the WOOD-TV studios in Grand Rapids.

They found a lot to agree on including the need for better roads, and expanded health care coverage.

Whitmer took some shots for accepting campaign donations from Blue Cross Blue Shield and other corporate political action committees.

Whitmer didn't engage her opponents, saying she is focused on solving problems for residents.

The primary election is in August.
