Rep. Candice S. Miller, R-Mich., endorsed former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land’s bid for Senate on Tuesday, calling the GOP hopeful “the type of woman we need to put forward more often in the Republican Party.”

Land is the lone Republican running for retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin’s seat in Michigan. GOP Rep. Dave Camp considered a bid but decided against running last week. Republican Rep. Justin Amash continues to mull a campaign for Senate.

“Terri Lynn Land is a dedicated and accomplished public servant who has delivered for the people of Michigan,” Miller, the only woman to lead a House committee, said in a release. “I strongly endorse her candidacy and urge Republicans across the state to unite behind her.”

If Land wins the primary, she will likely face Rep. Gary Peters, the only Democrat thus far to announce a bid.

The Michigan Senate race is rated a Safe Democratic contest by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.

    One bribe taking voter suppressing cu*t supports another, what a shock

    To the liberty school, the liberty of a free country is a state of affairs where centralized power, control, and coercion are minimized.

  • YoungConservative

    Why aren’t more people endorsing her? Is anyone looking at the poll numbers? She is clearly the most popular GOP candidate statewide and the best chance to pick up the seat. And she absolutely annihilated her opponents for her SOS elections. Seems like the GOP would be shooting themselves in the foot if they backed anybody else.
