Sen. Debbie Stabenow will kick off her re-election bid with about $3 million in the bank, according to the Associated Press.
The Michigan Democrat will also report raising $1.2 million in the first three months of this year.
Stabenow is running for a third term in 2012. Her race is expected to be competitive, although no Republicans have officially jumped into the fray yet. Several Republicans — including former Rep. Pete Hoekstra, former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land and former state GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis — are considering entering the race.

Scott Brown, R-Mass., candidate for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, holds his hand over his heart during the singing of the national anthem as he waits to take the stage for his town hall campaign rally with Sen. John McCain at the Pinkerton Academy in Derry, N.H., on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014.
