GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – There are 23 days left until you decide 2014.

Both Democrats and Republicans continue bringing out the big guns as we close in on Election Day.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, hit the road Monday for several stops in Michigan, stumping for Terri Lynn Land and other statewide candidates.

A recent poll by Mitchell Research shows Peters lead shrinking.

Between Sept. 29 and Oct. ,9 the Democrat’s lead shrunk from 13 points to just five. It’s a gap that former Gov. Bush is hoping gets even tighter because he says a lot is riding on this race.

“The very basic fact is we can see what the future looks like in the United States by looking at what's going on around states that have begun to change things already,” Bush said. “Under the leadership of your great governor you've taken a situation that was by far and away one of the worst in the country and you've begun to see significant job growth.”

Bush is the latest in a line of high-profile politicos visiting Michigan and he won’t be the last.

Another potential presidential candidate will be in Michigan on Thursday supporting Democrats.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is scheduled to make a stop at Oakland University.
