"The people who are supportive of the president are very supportive, they're very enthusiastic", said Anderson, adding that the GOP also will have to appeal to independent swing voters.

In other races that will be closely watched this fall, Democrats nominated former national security official Elissa Slotkin and former state Rep. Gretchen Driskell for Republican-held House seats in southeastern MI.
