Senator Deborah Stabenow (D-MI)
Senator Stabenow was re-elected to a third term last night. Earlier this year, Senator Stabenow's opponent Pete Hoekstra ran a negative campaign that was roundly criticized for its racist anti-Chinese imagery. Stabenow is the chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
