Land Slightly Outraises Peters in Third Quarter Fundraising

While Republican Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land has been struggling in the polls over the last several months, she has consistently outraised her opponent, Rep. Gary Peters, since joining the race last June. 

The third quarter fundraising period proved to be no different for the former secretary of state. Her campaign reported more than $2.13 million in contributions, whereas the Peters campaign pulled in just over $2 million.

"Once again Terri has proven that Michigan families and workers support her plan to put Michigan first by balancing the budget, fixing our roads, combating ISIS and securing our borders,” Land campaign spokeswoman Heather Swift said in a statement.

Election Day is just two weeks away—whether Land will be able to use her cash advantage to turn things around remains to be seen.
