LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Joe Biden is seeking to reclaim once-reliably blue Michigan for Democrats, while President Donald Trump is trying to again seize the key battleground. Tuesday’s election also features the state’s most competitive U.S. Senate race in 20 years, several closely watched U.S. House contests and a dogfight for control of the state House. Voters also are deciding the makeup of the Michigan Supreme Court. In the Senate race, Democratic Sen. Gary Peters is eyeing a second term. Republican John James is looking to become just the second Michigan Republican to serve in the Senate in more than 40 years.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — John James is aiming to be the first Michigan Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat in a quarter-century. Sen. Gary Peters is eyeing a second term, which would extend Democrats’ dominance in the state’s Senate races. Tuesday’s expensive, heavily contested election will also help shape which party controls the Senate. The 61-year-old Peters is one of two Democrats running for reelection in a state Donald Trump won in 2016. Michigan is a presidential battleground and a rare place on the Senate map for Republicans to play offense. James is a Black businessman and Iraq War veteran. He’s waging a stiff challenge.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Republican Peter Meijer and Democrat Hillary Scholten are vying in what may be Michigan’s most competitive House race after Rep. Justin Amash decided not to seek reelection.

It stretches south to the Battle Creek area. Meijer is a 32-year-old veteran who served in Iraq. His family founded the Meijer chain of stores. Scholten is a 38-year-old immigration lawyer who worked at the Justice Department during President Barack Obama’s administration.
