Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land is running for the U.S. Senate as a Republican and shockingly, her Democratic opponent Rep. Gary Peters is accusing her of waging a war on women (Democrats are being really original with their attack strategy this year). Now, Land is taking on the issue directly with her first campaign ad openly mocking Peters for accusing her, a woman, of waging a war on women.
"I'm Terri Lynn Land and I approve this message because as a woman, I might know a little bit more about women than Gary Peters."
The ad is actually really good. Instead of being defensive about why she doesn't hate women, Land simply allows Peters' ridiculous accusations stand and fall all on their own, putting her immediately back on offense while quickly addressing the issue.
Recent polling shows Lynn slightly leading Peters and she's also been beating him in the fundraising department.
