From The Hill:

Jane Abraham, the wife of former Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-Mich.), is all but certain to announce her candidacy for her husbandís old seat by the end of the month, conservative activists say.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who narrowly beat Spencer Abraham in 2000, is up for reelection next year.

A Michigan Republican said yesterday that Abraham, the head of an anti-abortion group called the Susan B. Anthony List, met last week with leading fundraisers around the state. The Republican estimated that it would cost the GOP nominee $20 million to take back the seat in the Democratic-leaning state.
...
Once she jumps in, Abraham is likely to emerge as the GOP front-runner. The Rev. Keith Butler of Detroit is the only Republican officially running for the Senate nomination but has failed to get leading Republicans in Michigan and Washington to rally around him.

Stabenow has generally been underrated politically, among the culprits being myself, but Abraham is potentially a solid candidate.

The GOP has a lot more money than the DNC-- in part because Dean was overrated as a fundraiser (which I predicted, by the way). In any case, if Abraham gets off the ground OK and is even somewhat close, the GOP can throw unlimited funds at MI.

Republicans should wait for 2008. if hillary gets the nomination it would help the republicans if they sit and wait to challenge expected retiree Carl Levin.

Debbie Stabenow though will get re-elected. Shes 1/14 i think women in the senate.

I was hoping she would run, considering all the really good candidates refuse too. She will lose 47-52, but at least it won't be a Stabenow blowout it would have been with a no name candidate.
