A Wall Street executive is considering a run for Senate in Michigan for retiring Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s seat in 2024 as Republicans have yet to court a serious contender for the vacancy, according to Politico.
Vice Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange and Michigan native John Tuttle served under former President George W. Bush’s Political Affairs Office and has been working on Wall Street since 2007, according to Politico. The Wall Street executive could potentially face Democratic opposition from Rep. Elissa Slotkin, and has already been corresponding with Republicans in Michigan and Washington, D.C.
“John Tuttle is a strong potential recruit in Michigan,” Republican Montana Sen. Steve Daines, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said per Politico. (RELATED: Dem Sen. Debbie Stabenow Announces She Will Not Seek Reelection)

Former GOP Rep. Peter Meijer is also weighing a bid, but he lost his congressional seat in the midterms, and failed Republican gubernatorial candidate Kevin Rinke is considering a run, as well, according to Politico. Republican Rep. John James, who unsuccessfully ran against Stabenow and Democratic Sen. Gary Peters in 2018 and 2020, respectfully, isn’t running for Senate this cycle.
Tuttle did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
