Peters With Double Digit Lead Among Potential U.S. Senate Candidates


According to a recent poll, Michigan Congressman Gary Peters has a double-digit lead over many other potential candidates for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination. The poll was conducted by Lansing-based political consulting firm Main Street Strategies, LLC. Peters was named by almost 25% of the 1,032 likely Democratic voters contacted.

Former Congressman Bart Stupak came in second to Peters. Democratic National Committeewoman Debbie Dingell and former Congressman Mark Schauer came in third and fourth respectively.

Joe DiSano, partner with Main Street strategies, said “Democrats are still getting used to the idea of Carl Levin stepping away from the U.S. Senate, but at this point, Gary Peters is in a strong position to claim the Democratic nomination.” He added that while just over 45% of voters were undecided, “the fact that Peters’ support doubles his nearest competitor is a clear sign that Peters is the strongest candidate Democrats can field in 2014.”
