Michigan Senate


There will be a Senate election in 2014 in conjunction with the gubernatorial election. Democratic congressman Gary Peters (18/16) announced he would run in 2014. While he is not a well-known commodity, the Republicans who might be mentioned are less known at this point.

This has more to do with the overall Democratic lean of the state and the overall unpopularity of Republicans in Michigan at this point, than anything else. Since the candidates are so relatively weak in name recognition, it's almost entirely party line voting.


If the Republicans want to win the Senate seat in 2014, they'll need to have one of the candidates really step up or for Gary Peters to stumble hard.
