Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mi) is in trouble.

His opponent, John James, is 34,000 votes ahead right now.

This is going to come down to what absentees are left.

1. Really?

So we donít get a single upset but they do? What horseshit.

And why would anyone vote for this Trump-enabling stooge? What a joke.

4. He got a ton of money from the DeVos family

and the GOP has been really pushing for him. More work to GOTV. But we need to see the Wayne County votes before we assume he's won.

10. James went back ahead about five minutes after that.

I don't agree with the OP that Peters is in trouble, however. It's all about the remaining votes.

3. There's been posts that Vice President Biden

has taken the lead in MI. If they're counting absentee/mail in's now, then I would suspect the same trend happening with the Senate race also. So, the lead James had may have already been erased.

5. The senate race is a little behind on reporting

Peters will win.

8. I hope Peters prevails

James is an absolutely nothing candidate. He hasn't made a single statement about where he stands on any issue. Total blank slate. It's really pathetic. Especially when you consider how much Peters has done for the state.

9. Not really

I hear the remaining votes are overwhelmingly blue. For instance, 30% of Detroit has yet to come in. That's going Democrat by 2 to 1. Peters should make up over 30,000 votes from that one county alone.

11. But there are 20,000 votes yet in Shelby Township which

Are breaking (R). That county is where Trump gained in 2016. So itís still neck in neck.

Iím not going to breathe until the Secretary of State certifies this senate race. Too damn close!
