LANSING, MI (AP) -

Democrats vying for Michigan governor head into the final two months of their primary fight with a number of new policy initiatives in hand, including a single-payer system of universal health care, a college scholarship program and a plan to offset child care costs so women can work.

The first Democrat-only televised debate is Wednesday, where the three candidates will tout their agendas to a broader audience after several weeks of unveiling them.

Gretchen Whitmer, Shri Thanedar, and Abdul El-Sayed agree on many issues. But there are some differences that are being emphasized in the stretch to the Aug. 7 election.
