Midterm race to watch: John James, an Iraq War veteran and businessman in Detroit, Michigan is running for office against Democrat incumbent, Sen. Debbie Stabenow. While some say its a long-shot for him to win against Stabenow who is a 43 year politician, polls are now showing that he’s gaining support and has cut her lead over him in half.
Excerpt from Fox News:
But an EPIC-MRA poll from late October showed Stabenow with just a 7-point lead, an Emerson poll showed her up 9 points and a new Mitchell Research & Communications poll showed the incumbent leading by 6 points.
“John James is giving 43-year politician Debbie Stabenow the fight of her political life and there is zero question she’ll be running scared these final days,” Tori Sachs, James’ campaign manager, told Fox News in a statement last week.
Much like Republicans in Texas, Democrats are taking the Michigan challenge seriously, with even former President Barack Obama visiting the state to campaign.
