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

Michigan Democrats were stung by now-President Trump’s surprise victory in 2016 and have vowed not to have a repeat this year.

The 2018 midterms have given many officials hope that the state can stay blue, as Democrat Gretchen Whitmer notched a big win for governor and others flipped seats up and down the ballot.

Michigan’s senior senator, U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Lansing), also won reelection, although by a smaller margin than her last two elections. She’s widely regarded as a formidable powerbroker who’s frequently underestimated, like when she knocked off GOP then-U.S. Sen. Spencer Abraham in 2000.

Stabenow said that the Nov. 3 general election is critical to Michigan’s economic future.

“It is not an exaggeration to say everything our families care about is on the line,” said Stabenow.

2. Good to see her wading into this maelstrom.

Her junior senatorial partner, Gary Peters, can use a boost. He has a scary narrow lead over John James (who Stabenow narrowly defeated in '18, if 6% is "narrow"

Now John James is in a TV advert blitz attacking Gary Peters. Hopefully, James will be sent packing again.

This race might be tighter because Peters is not the "constant communicator" that Stabenow has been through her terms.
