[Ed. – Another race tightens.]
The Michigan race for the US Senate has gotten closer, with underdog Republican candidate John James making a late October surge in the polls, giving incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow the political fight of her life.
“This whole race started on my knees. This whole thing started with praying for wisdom asking the Lord to not necessarily make my path easy, but to make it clear. He’s absolutely done that,” James told CBN News.
“I have the faith and belief that I may be in this position for a time such as this and it’s not because I’m anything special, but because God is preparing to do a great work in the state of Michigan,” James continued.
Michigan is a key battleground. President Trump barely won the state in 2016.
“It was the closest margin of victory of any state in the country, so although he did win, his victory shows a very closely divided state,” said Robert Yoon, a political analyst, and reporter for Inside Elections.
Now as Republicans fight to maintain control of the House and Senate, Yoon sees Michigan as a state to watch because voters here tend to cross party lines for candidates who appeal to them.
