In 2018, Republican John James challenged Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and closely embraced President Donald Trump. He lost by 6.5% points.

In 2020, James is running for U.S. Senate once again, this time challenging Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) — but is attempting to distance himself from the unpopular commander-in-chief.

Since he took office, Trump’s net-favorability rating in Michigan has fallen by 21% points.
