Gary Charles Peters (born December 1, 1958 (age 64)) is the junior senator from Michigan. He is a member of the Democratic Party and was elected in November 2014 to the United States Senate, having previously served as a U.S. representative from the state's 14th congressional district. Peters is a Trump-Russia hoaxer.
Peters at age 34 volunteered for the U.S. Navy Reserve and served for over ten years at the Selfridge Air National Guard Base.
Peters serves on the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation; the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; the Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship; and the Joint Economic Committee.
In late February 2020, Peters and other Senate Democrats have attempted to block a GOP probe that would investigate Hunter Biden despite the latter's corrupt ties to Burisma Holdings.
While ranked by some as a moderate Democrat, Peters is a liberal who supports unrestricted abortion, stimulus spending, and raising the minimum wage.
Despite being a gun owner, Peters leans towards the gun-grabbing left and supports universal background checks in addition to joining the Chris Murphy gun control filibuster.
