Gary Peters

Those who question the power Senator Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Township) is acquiring in Washington D.C., likely underestimate the longtime politician, who has been referred to as “low-key,” like a “neighborhood dad,” and “studious.” Flying under the radar of political mayhem has worked in Peters’ favor. During the 2022 election cycle, Peters lead the Democratic campaign arm, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), and held every single Democratic Senate seat – as well as picking an extra one up. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did a little arm twisting, and convinced Peters to take on the DSCC mantle one more time, for the 2024 election cycle, when there is a presidential election and several senate seats up, including that of his colleague Senator Debbie Stabenow, who is retiring. In return, Peters received a seat on the Senate appropriations committee. He is also chair of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Slow and steady wins the race. Powerful stuff, indeed.
