In Michigan, the GOP Lands a Big-Time Candidate
Terri Lynn Land appears set to run for Senate in Michigan:
I would like to thank everyone who has been encouraging me to run for US Senate. Representing our magnificent state of Michigan and your interests in Congress would be the greatest honor. We need conservative leadership now more than ever because of high unemployment, huge deficits, and a spendthrift Congress.
Beginning today, I am putting together a campaign strategy and a policy team. I will be filing the appropriate paper work by July 1 to become a Republican primary candidate.
Now is our chance to win. I eagerly look forward to speaking with you face-to-face about ways to launch our country to prosperity while defending our liberty and freedoms.
Land served as Michigan’s secretary of state from 2003 to 2011; she won election and reelection handily in 2002 and 2006 while other Republicans had troubles winning other statewide offices in those cycles. She has been a member of the RNC since the 2012 convention.
Democratic senator Carl Levin is retiring.
