Countdown To Election Day: Michigan Races

From the White House to local offices, candidates now have just 14 days to convince you that they are the right person to lead.

In Michigan, voters will choose a president, 14 U.S. House representatives, two state Supreme Court justices and all 110 Michigan House members.

The GOP’s majority is at stake.

The spotlight will be on the race for president and who gets Michigan’s 16 electoral votes.

Closer to home, the race for the 1st Congressional District.

Republican Jack Bergman and Democrat Lon Johnson are fighting to take Representative Dan Benishek’s role.

Whoever wins will represent the entire 1st Congressional District.

Early voting is already underway in many states, but not ours.

Michigan does not have early voting.

However, qualified voters can cast absentee ballots before Election Day.

Michigan’s votes could be the deciding factor in who becomes the next president.

The gap is widening between democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

Campaigning in Florida Monday, the GOP nominee says the polls are part of the problem.

"This is part of the crooked system, part of the rigged system which I’ve been talking about since I entered the race," said Trump.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton campaigned alongside Senator Elizabeth Warren Monday in Manchester, New Hampshire.    

She focused in on Trump’s views on defeating ISIS.

“This is a guy who says he knows more about ISIS than the generals. I don’t think so. He’s basically declaring defeat before the battle has even started. He’s proving to the world what it means to have an unqualified commander in chief. It’s not only wrong, it’s dangerous and it needs to be repudiated,” said Clinton.
