Sen. Stabenow has $3 million for re-election bid
Michigan's Democratic Senator Debbie Stabeow has $3 million on hand for her 2012 re-election bid, according to the Associated Press. From the AP:
The Associated Press on Wednesday obtained a copy of the Stabenow for U.S. Senate committee's April quarterly report, which is due to the FEC by Friday.
In it, the committee says Stabenow raised nearly $1.2 million in the period that ran from Jan. 1 to March 31 and has $3 million on hand in the run for her third term in the Senate.
Stabenow was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000. The only Republican to declare candidacy for the seat so far is Randy Hekman, a former Kent County judge. He announced his candidacy last month.
Other possible GOP candidates for the Senate seat include former West Michigan Congressman Pete Hoekstra, former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and former Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party Saul Anuzis.
