(CBS DETROIT) – Michigan Sen. Gary Peters says he’s looking forward to debating his Republican opponent, John James.

This comes after James challenges him to four televised debates.

Peters then responded on Twitter after he heard about the proposal.

Michigan’s Secretary of State says absent voter ballot returns are already topping the 2016 election numbers. Over 1.8 million ballots have been requested and over 600,000 have been returned.
