|Next general||November 4, 2014|
The 1st Congressional District of Michigan will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. The 1st District is considered one of Ballotpedia's battleground districts in 2014. Incumbent Rep. Dan Benishek (R) won by only 1,881 votes in 2012. The district has seen recent changes in its electorate, with Obama narrowly winning the district in 2008, but Romney claiming victory in 2012. Both the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have taken notice of this district, adding both Benishek and Democratic challenger Jerry Cannon, a former sheriff, to their respective election programs. Benishek won the Republican nomination against Alan Arcand in the primary on August 5, 2014. Benishek will face Jerry Cannon (D), Ellis Boal (Green Party) and Loel Gnadt (L) on November 4, 2014.
