THE HILL: Granholm endorses Gary Peters in Michigan

Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) is endorsing Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) for the Senate, the latest sign of Michigan Democrats’ unity around Peters as their nominee to replace retiring Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.)

“I was thrilled when Gary announced that he would be running for the U.S. Senate because he’s exactly who we need standing up for us,” Granholm writes in a fundraising email to Peters’s supporters.  “Gary’s record in the U.S. House of Representatives has been about one thing and one thing only – fighting for middle class families no matter the stakes. Whether it meant taking on special interests to advocate for Michigan manufacturers or stop restrictions to women’s health care, Gary has proven to us that he is the kind of progressive champion we need in Washington.”
