DETROIT (FOX 2) – Almost 24 hours since polls closed in Michigan, the race for the US Senate between Gary Peters and John James is still too close to be called, despite the campaign of Republican challenger claiming victory early

With nearly every constituency reporting on the race, Peters and James are hovering around the 49% mark, with the incumbent Senator holding a slight advantage of 15,000 votes From 6.30pm Peters has 262 million votes against James’ 260 with 97% of the vote

An adviser to James, Stu Sandler, said the campaign was “keeping their options open” regarding possible litigation

Voting is expected to end on Wednesday night at some point, but it’s unclear when

“When we learned that there were 52 million votes in it and John James won, we accepted the victory At that point additional votes were added, there was a lack of integrity and that’s when we started to realize that there was no challenge to the process Then we heard about 35,000 votes that came through a pallet It’s all the irregularities that piled up throughout the day, “Stu Sandler, a GOP policy consultant

The final votes for the Michigan Senate seat are still being tallied and it’s a stalemate between John James and incumbent Democrat Gary Peters

President Donald Trump says Michigan is trying to keep James out of the Senate by “finding” votes

Peters said on Tuesday evening that he knew the vote would take a long time for all votes to be counted

James already made waves two years ago when he challenged Debbie Stabenow for the US Senate Now he’s mistaking the Democrat for the other Michigan Senate seat

Peters is almost 30 years as an elected official and ran for his first post in 1991 James is a political outsider who made waves two years ago when he closed this race
