Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., has been selected to lead the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee into the 2022 election cycle.

The announcement of his selection as the new chair for the DSCC came Thursday morning, according to Politico.

"The DSCC is strongly dedicated to working with grassroots organizations to mobilize voters, and with someone like Gary at the helm, who is battle-tested and understands firsthand what it takes to win challenging battleground races, Senate Democrats will be well-positioned to continue to win and get results that will improve the lives of millions of Americans," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said.

He called Peters a "hardworking, disciplined, and effective member" of the Senate.

Democrats face a competitive cycle in which they'll have to defend newly elected senators in Georgia and Arizona, Politico noted. The party will also be looking to go on the offensive in North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

"I look forward to drawing on my own experience winning tough races to continue that work, and I am grateful to Majority Leader Schumer and our caucus for trusting me with this responsibility," Peters said.

Peters is a former lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserve, Roll Call noted. He was elected to the House in 2008 and served until he ran for Senate.
