- Although increasingly more conservative, Michigan's 1st District was one of the most competitive districts in the country. Winning the 2012 election by only 0.5 percentage points, Rep. Dan Benishek (R) was considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in 2014.
- U.S. Senate
- With the retirement of Sen. Carl Levin, Republicans had one of the better chances in recent years to change partisan control of the seat. Republican Terri Lynn Land showed strong fundraising in 2013, however she still faced a tough battle against Rep. Gary Peters (D).
