Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Bob Young (R), who launched his Senate challenge to incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) months ago, announced he is ending his campaign. Unable to raise sufficient funds to compete in a large state, the former jurist will presumably retire from elective politics. This likely leaves manufacturing business owner and retired Army Ranger John James and venture capital firm owner Sandy Pensler to battle for the party nomination. The Michigan primary won’t be held until August 7th. Sen. Stabenow is favored to win a fourth term.
