Stabenow Wants A "Partner" In U.S. Senate



Count U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow among the Michiganders paying very close attention to the race to succeed the retiring Carl Levin. Stabenow obviously is pulling for Congressman Gary Peters to win, as she wants to keep the state represented by two Democrats in the upper chamber.

:11     Q...cancel my vote

The latest EPIC-MRA poll released this week gives Congressman Peters a 6% lead over former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, 44% to 38%. The suburban Detroit Democrat has a surprisingly strong 14% lead over Land among female voters, while the Republican holds a 5% edge with men. The 79-year-old Levin is stepping down after this term after first being elected to the Senate in 1978. Stabenow was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000, defeating incumbent Republican Spencer Abraham. After losing that election, Abraham served as Energy Secretary for the first term of President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2005.
