In her first joint appearance with Republican opponents, Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow said she's worked for compromise despite the partisan gridlock gripping Congress.

Meanwhile, GOP hopeful Pete Hoekstra said he has the right mix of business and government experience to be an effective senator, while Republican Clark Durant said a political newcomer is needed.

The three candidates made back-to-back appearances Wednesday during the Detroit Regional Chamber's annual policy conference on Mackinac Island.

They avoided attacks on each other and focused instead on their qualifications. All three say strong action is needed to reduce the soaring federal debt. But none offered specific plans for accomplishing that.
