Incumbent Democratic senator from Michigan Gary Peters overcame a huge lead to win re-election to the senate on Wednesday.
Peters overcame a substantial double digit lead by his challenger, Republican John James to win 49.6% to 48.5% with 98% of precincts reporting unofficial results.
“I am sincerely honored that the voters of Michigan have once again put their trust and confidence in me to represent them in the United States Senate,” Peters said in a statement. “As we look ahead, I am energized to keep working to move our state forward and continue putting Michigan first.”
Peters was one of two Democratic senators running in a state Trump won in 2016. The other, Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama lost his re-election.
