Stabenow-James debateA longshot GOP candidate in Michigan is now within single digits of defeating a veteran U.S. senator.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow is leading challenger John James by an average of 7.3 points according to RealClearPolitics and its average of three polls from mid-October. Stabenow leads in all three.

But the back story is that James, a former U.S. Army helicopter pilot, has closed a 20-point gap just a week before Election Day.

Michigan famously broke for President Trump two years ago, but just barely, by 10,700 votes.  

James describes himself as a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-business conservative.

Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, says James would make an "exemplary" senator representing The Wolverine State.

"He's almost Hollywood-made for the part: a graduate of West Point, combat veteran, helicopter pilot," Glenn says. "And once he came back from Iraq, he took over the family business and grew it substantially in Detroit."

Glenn credits the closing poll numbers to James appealing to a "broad spectrum" of Michigan voters just days before Election Day.
