LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s Senate race between incumbent Democrat Gary Peters and Republican challenger John James was too early to call Wednesday morning, with many votes still uncounted. The contest may shape which party controls the Senate, where the GOP now has the majority. James is aiming to be the first Michigan Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat in a quarter-century. Peters is seeking a second term. He’s a former congressman, state senator, lottery commissioner and investment adviser. James runs his family’s automotive logistics business and flew helicopters during combat missions in Iraq.
