Gary Peters

US Senate Michigan Democrat
Before running for public office, Gary Peters graduated from law school and worked for various institutions as a financial and policy advisor. He also served in the US Navy Reserve for 15 years, during which time he achieved the rank of lieutenant commander. His sense of civic duty compelled him to pursue a career in the public sector, where he could continue fighting for the best interests of everyday Americans in a different way. He served on the Rochester Hills City Council, the Michigan State Senate, and the US House of Representatives before winning his US Senate election in 2014.

As a senator, he has made gun safety a top priority. Like many Michiganders, Senator Peters is a gun owner, which is why he stresses the need for commonsense legislation to keep gun owners and non-gun owners safe. In 2016, following the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando and total inaction from Republican leadership, he joined his Democratic colleagues in a 15-hour filibuster on the Senate floor to enable a vote on gun safety legislation. In the face of fierce opposition, Senator Peters continues to protect his constituents by being a vocal proponent of gun safety legislation.

We are proud to endorse Gary Peters for the US Senate in 2020.
