Corporate cronyism

Stabenow, an ally of Monsanto, voted against a bill that would have required labeling for foods that contain GMOs.[2] In return, she received three-quarter million dollars from agribusiness interests.[3]

Political positions

While considered a moderate by some on due to her stances on certain issues, such as bank deregulation,[4] Stabenow is a liberal who supports unrestricted abortion, the Obama stimulus, gun control, and ObamaCare.[5] However, she has a strong backing from many farmers that generally lean Republican,[6] as she supports many pro-agribusiness legislations and drafts, such as the USMCA.[7]
