Michigan Dem Worries Democrats Will Lose Senate Seat

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D., Mich.) on Wednesday expressed concern about incumbent senator Gary Peters’s (D., Mich.) reelection chances against Republican challenger John James.

“That is a very competitive race, and that race has not yet been decided,” Dingell said during an interview on MSNBC. “Every vote is going to matter in this election and I feel about this race the way that I did about Donald Trump winning Michigan four years ago. It could happen.”

Dingell pointed out that Trump’s narrow victories in swing states, including Michigan, in 2016 came after he aggressively campaigned there. She stressed that a similar result is possible this year.

“There is a reason Donald Trump is going to Wisconsin, to Michigan, to Pennsylvania, and it’s how he won last time,” she said. “And anything can happen. And it’s not just Michigan.”

Peters enjoys a six-point polling lead, according to the RealClearPolitics average, but James has made Peters’s reelection fight unexpectedly difficult. Some in the black community have alleged Peters takes them for granted and “hasn’t shown up” during his time in the Senate, and James, who is black, has focused his campaign on Peters being ineffective for Michiganders.
