The 1st Congressional District of Michigan held an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014. The 1st District was considered one of Ballotpedia's battleground districts in 2014. Incumbent Rep. Dan Benishek (R) won by only 1,881 votes in 2012. The district saw 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 took 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 then defeated Jerry Cannon (D), Ellis Boal (Green Party) and Loel Gnadt (L) on November 4, 2014, in the general election.
