New Terri Lynn Land Ad Knocks Washington

Republican Senate hopeful Terri Lynn Land is going up with a new positive television spot touting her plans to help Michigan. The former secretary of state will run the ad statewide starting Friday, the campaign said. The campaign declined to provide the total amount of money behind the buy, but described it as "significant." Land faces Democratic Rep. Gary Peters in the race for the seat currently held by retiring Sen. Carl Levin. Republicans need to win six seats to take control of the Senate in November. The ad, provided first to CQ Roll Call by Land's campaign, touts her Michigan First plan. "How will Terri Lynn Land put Michigan first?" a male narrator asks, and then goes on to say she will ask for trade deals, and work to secure the borders. www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSKcJrcZ6HQ&feature=youtu.be "And by keeping Michigan families’ tax dollars in Michigan to improve roads and infrastructure, instead of having them wasted in Washington," the narrator adds. "Turn the page on the Washington politics and hypocrisy with Terri Lynn Land’s plan to put Michigan first," he concludes. The race is rated Leans Democratic by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.   Related stories: You Decide Where to Send Roll Call Reporters for the Midterms Michigan Primary Results How Major League Baseball Could Determine Control of Congress Roll Call Election Map: Race Ratings for Every Seat Get breaking news alerts and more from Roll Call in your inbox or on your iPhone.
