With her children's pictures crowding her desk, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) listens to a staff member during a meeting in her office on Capitol Hill. On Stabenow's desk are pictures of her two children depicted during two of her early campaigns. In the Senate and throughout her political career, Stabenow's primary issues have included health care, prescription drugs, education, environment, and working with business community in Michigan.
