The Michigan Democratic Party Chair, Lavora Barnes, issued the following statement on Senator Debbie Stabenow’s announcement on not seeking another term in the U.S. Senate in 2024.
“Senator Stabenow has dedicated her life to Michigan and truly has been a tremendous public servant. She is our biggest cheerleader, offering unwavering support to the Michigan Democratic Party and fighting for Michiganders every day. It has been an honor to work alongside her to ensure that we have a voice in Lansing and Washington D.C.
Our work together is far from over. I know Sen. Stabenow’s support will remain unwavering and that she is deeply committed to keeping this seat blue. The strength of the Democratic Party in Michigan has reached new heights and we have full confidence in our ability to defend this seat.
All of us who are part of the Michigan Democratic Party family wish the Senator the best as she finishes her term as Michigan’s first woman to serve in the U.S. Senate. She will always be a friend, role-model, and have our deepest respect.”
