Stabenow opposed the nomination of Jeff Sessions to become attorney general in 2017, citing his "sketchy record on civil issues".[4] Stabenow, either out of ignorance or sheer partisan rancor, did not mention that Sessions had previously desegregated schools, broke up the KKK, and secured the death penalty for a white supremacist who murdered a black teenager.[5]

Eugene Scalia

Stabenow voted with her party line against the nomination of Eugene Scalia to become the Secretary of Labor.[6]

Tom Leonard

Stabenow, along with Michigan's junior senator Gary Peters, blocked Trump's nomination of Tom Leonard to be a federal prosecutor in Grand Rapids.[7]

Political positions

While considered a moderate by some on due to her stances on certain issues, such as bank deregulation,[8] Stabenow is a liberal who supports unrestricted abortion, the Obama stimulus, gun control, and ObamaCare.[9] However, she has a strong backing from many farmers that generally lean Republican,[10] as she supports many pro-agribusiness legislations and drafts, such as the USMCA.[11]
