Michigan Republicans Fail to Land a Stabenow Challenger

Former Michigan secretary of state Terri Lynn Land decided against challenging two-term incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow in 2012. According to the AP, former Kent County probate judge Randy Hekman is the only Republican so far to formally enter the race.

While Michigan is a traditionally Democratic state, Republican Rick Snyder easily won the state’s governor’s race last year, and Stabenow’s job approval has been as low as 37 percent.

A “Draft Saul Anuzis for Senate” group has cropped up in Michigan, hoping he will challenge Stabenow.
