U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow will not seek a fifth six-year term

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow announced Thursday she will not seek a fifth six-year term. Instead, she will cap off a career that included serving on the Ingham County Commission, the state Legislature, and the U.S. House before landing in the Senate.

Stabenow told WXYZ-TV in Detroit she will work to help make sure another Democrat replaces her in what’s expected to be a competitive race:

“On the political front, going to be very involved in making sure that we’re in a strong position to keep Michigan blue, and I’m confident we can do that I will certainly, whoever our nominee is, I will be locking arms with them to support them.”

Stabenow chairs the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. Her work in the Senate has focused on nutrition, mental health services and the state’s manufacturing sector.
