Senate Election Updates

Bridget Belden, Writer

There are 100 seats in the senate, two seats for each state. This year Michigan had a election for new senators, along with multiple other states. Although some states are not having an election for the senate this year. Currently 46 of those 100 seats are filled with Democrats, 48 are filled with Republicans, and 6 are undecided.

At the moment Michigan’s senators are both a part of the Democratic Party and they are Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow. Debbie Stabenow has been a Michigan senator since 2001 and Gary Peters has been a Michigan senator since 2015. This year’s election was competing for Gary Peter’s place on the senate and he ended up being elected for another six years.
