Peters Statement on Senator Stabenow’s Retirement Announcement

DETROIT, MI U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement today on the retirement of Senator Stabenow after 2024:

“Senator Stabenow is a trailblazer and amazing Senator for Michigan. Her distinguished record stands as a testament to her devotion to Michigan and families across our country.

“Debbie is a dear friend and mentor. There is no question she will leave an enduring legacy — as a champion for children, women and families, workers, manufacturing and our auto industry, mental health care and the Great Lakes. As Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, she’s played a powerful role in shaping our agriculture policy, working to end child hunger, and focusing on the issues most important to farmers and our agriculture industry in Michigan.

“I will miss serving with her but know that her work — and our work together — for Michigan is not done. I look forward to working with her over the next two years to again pass a comprehensive farm bill and deliver results for Michigan.”

Peters and Stabenow have served together in the U.S. Senate since 2015.
