Stabenow's Likely GOP Opponent? Pete Hoekstra

But polls show Durant failing to close a big gap with the frontrunner, and his campaign has also dealt with some unhelpful issues during recent weeks: Hoesktra's campaign questioned the connection between Durant's campaign and the super PAC (the PAC was started by his campaign manager's brother) and filed an FEC complaint against the PAC, and the Michigan Democratic Party said they were filing an IRS complaint with the IRS over Durant's salary from a nonprofit. Stabenow is outpolling Hoekstra by double-digit margins and her warchest dwarfs his. Don't count this general election as a done deal -- but Hoesktra (or Durant, if he manages to pull it off) will have a steep hill to climb.
