President Trump made a campaign stop in Michigan with one week left until the general election, as the battleground polls continue to tighten. The president stumped for rising GOP star and Senate candidate John James, who is running to unseat incumbent Democrat Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) in a highly competitive Senate race.

Sen. Peters struggles with name identification among constituents, as President Trump pointed out. James has closed the once-wide gap in polling, giving Sen. Peters a tough reelection battle. 

In what was once a safe seat for Democrats on November's Senate map, Sen. Peters' reelection is rated as a toss-up by Real Clear Politics and polling averages show James closing in on the vulnerable incumbent.
