Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) continued her strong and consistent fundraising pace by bringing in just shy of $1.5 million in the last three months, and used that to purchase $3.25 million worth of television ads in the state this fall, her campaign told The Hill on Monday.
While most swing-state Democratic senators are facing tough races this year, it looks increasingly like Stabenow will be safe. She'll face the winner of an Aug. 7 primary between former Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), whose campaign has struggled, and businessman and philanthropist Clark Durant (R). Neither Republican has released his fundraising totals for this quarter, which spans from April through June.
The Hill rates the race as leaning Democratic.
