Michigan Republican Posts $2 Million for Senate Campaign

Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land raised about $2 million in the third quarter for her Senate bid — with about $1 million of that sum coming from a personal contribution, according to a campaign source.

She is expected to report about $2 million in the bank in her race for the open Senate seat in Michigan.

Land is the likely GOP nominee for Senate. She will most almost certainly face Rep. Gary Peters, the likely Democratic nominee, in the general election in 2014.

But Land faces an uphill climb in her race to replace retiring Sen. Carl Levin, a Democrat, in the Senate. This race is rated Safe Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.

    I still wish I knew why this is rated “Safe Democrat.” Polls have shown, at the very least, a tight race, if not a slight Land lead. Peters may well win in this blue state, but I have a hard time seeing it as a sure thing just yet.

    I hate to sound partisan but with the rising involvement of the Republican led Tea Party in both houses of the Michigan Legislature and the US House of Representatives I am honestly thinking of voting straight Democratic. The Michigan House and Senate Teapublicans have given us higher taxes on the poor and middle class while giving corporation massive tax brakes not to menshion Right-to-work and the Koch brothers Teapublicans in the US House have given us the government shutdown trying to defund the Affordable Care Act which was passed by a majority of both houses of Congress, signed into law by the President and affirmed by the US Supreme Court. I am a belever in the two party system but right now the last thing I want to see is another Tea Party Republican elected anywhere in state or federal goverment.

    The Republicans need Dr. Carson to run for the Senate not another career politician.
