Along with the presidency, Republicans are battling to retain control of the Senate this election cycle. One of the most critical races this year is the race between incumbent Democratic Michigan Sen. Gary Peters and Republican candidate John James. Current polling reports that Peters is leading James, but the race has tightened significantly in the past few weeks.

James’ success in closing the gap has caught Democrats off guard, in fact, and he could deliver an upset in the state that could help Republicans shore up their slim majority in the Senate, according to the New York Times (NYT).
