Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is seeking a second term. She is unopposed for renomination. Her path to reelection was made somewhat easier when several leading GOP candidates were disqualified from the primary ballot.

Five Republicans did qualify for Tuesday's election, including conservative commentator Tudor Dixon, who received a late endorsement from Donald Trump. Dixon has had a double-digit lead in polling over the race's final week.

U.S. House

The state is losing a congressional district, with the new map forcing a member vs. member primary, ensuring at least one incumbent will be ousted. 

District Party Comments
3 R Rep. Peter Meijer, one of 10 House Republicans to vote for impeachment, is at risk of being ousted by Trump-endorsed candidate John Gibbs, a former Assistant HUD Secretary. Democratic-aligned groups are piling on - to the dismay of some in the party - as a Gibbs win would likely improve the prospects of Hillary Scholten (D), who lost to Meijer by six points as the 2020 nominee. 
8 R Three Republicans are looking to challenge Rep. Daniel Kildee (D) in this highly competitive district.
10 BOTH Open after redistricting, this race slightly favors the GOP. John James, who twice ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate, is the party's likely nominee. Five Democrats are vying to take him on in November. 
11 D Reps. Andy Levin and Haley Stevens will face each other in a member vs. member contest created by redistricting. While several incumbents are at risk on August 2, one is guaranteed to lose their job here. Levin is the more progressive of the two. That includes vocal support for Palestinian human rights, a position that has put him at odds with some pro-Israel groups in this district with a large Jewish community. 
13 D Brenda Lawrence (D) is retiring, opening the race up to a large field seeking the nomination for this Detroit-area seat. The winner will be a heavy favorite in November.
