'All hands on deck': Stabenow works to build another blue wave in Michigan

Stabenow is a leading voice in the Democrats’ strategy this year, from getting presidential nominee Joe Biden across the finish line to flipping the state Supreme Court. A big part of that is making sure her colleague, freshman Sen. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield), staves off a well-funded challenge from GOP businessman John James, who Stabenow dispatched in 2018. And Democrats also are focused on several key congressional races and taking control of the state House.

Michigan Democratic Party (MDP) Chair Lavora Barnes said Stabenow has been a strong leader.

“It is all hands on deck this election, and Sen. Stabenow has been an invaluable member of the team working to elect Democrats up and down the ticket,” Barnes said.

The MDP has faced some internal divisions in recent years, with big losses in 2016 prompting members of the progressive wing to clamor for more representation and some African Americans to criticize the party’s outreach.
