A spokeswoman for Rep. Gary Peters (D-MI) and assorted Democrats lit into Michigan GOP Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land on Twitter Tuesday for mentioning she is a mother in a radio interview.


In one representative example, Sam Inglot of far-left group Progress Michigan created a“Terri Lynn Land drinking game” that calls on participants listening to the program to “Drink when she says ‘I’m a mom’ or ‘The President needs to lead.’”

“How many times are you going to mention that you’re a mom?” Hugh Madden, another Progress Michigan activist, added in a tweet.

During her answers to two questions in an hour long interview on Michigan Public Radio where she took questions from callers statewide, Land noted how “I’m a mom” and how she has two kids. The first time she did it was in the context of how she was worried about “the safety and security of our country.”

LANSING, Mich., Oct. 6, 2014 – Gary Peters and Mark Schauer have been trying to distract voters from their “Lie of the Year” that cost 225,000 Michigan families their health care. Their support for Obamacare also hurt seniors as the law cut more than $700 billion from Medicare.

“Gary Peters and Mark Schauer have some serious questions to answer about their support for Obamacare,” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak. “The ‘Lie of the Year’ not only cost 225,000 Michigan families their health care, but it will also hurt our seniors by limiting their access to high-quality care. It’s clear Gary Peters and Mark Schauer don’t care about Michigan’s middle-class families and seniors who are suffering.”

Terri Lynn LandTerri Lynn Land is hoping that her focus on kitchen table issues can convince heavily Democratic voters in Michigan to send a Republican to the U.S. Senate for the first time in 20 years.

Democrats have won the last two Senate elections by 30 and 20 points, respectively. Land seemed to be riding a wave of support in 2013, emerging with steady leads late in the year, but after a poor performance at a June candidates’ forum and a steady stream of attack ads financed by Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), radical environmentalist billionaire Tom Steyer, and unions, Land now trails Peters by 6.5 points, according to Real Clear Politics.

While the current Rothenberg Political Report ratings don’t show it, I am now expecting a substantial Republican Senate wave in November, with a net gain of at least seven seats.

But I wouldn’t be shocked by a larger gain.

Rothenberg Political Report ratings reflect both where a race stands and, more importantly, where it is likely headed on Election Day. Since early polls rarely reflect the eventual November environment, either in terms of the candidates’ name recognition and resources or of the election’s dynamic, there is often a gap between how I categorize each race (my ratings) and what I privately assume will happen in November.

2013210056259-tdnbrd11-26-2013d1a00120131125imgme-land11t45307Terri Lynn Land’s decision to debate Gary Peters in the U.S. Senate race could be a capitulation to pressure from a media that has dubbed her a stealth candidate for not committing earlier to a face-off.

Or maybe it’s a crafty move in a campaign strategy from a candidate who’s savvier than than the former two-term secretary of state is being depicted.

Land never said she wouldn’t debate Peters, the Democratic congressman and her opponent in the contest. She just dodged the question.

Meanwhile, she’s been working for months with a team of experts to fortify her knowledge of both foreign and domestic issues likely to come up in a debate. She’s also been training to improve her comfort level in front of the camera.

1black_piles-1The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press both ran articles over the weekend detailing Gary Peters’ hypocrisy for investing in petcoke at the same time he is publicly attacking petcoke as a dangerous pollutant. This is consistent with Gary Peters’ hypocrisy on immigration, Wall Street, equal pay for women, and numerous other issues. But the fact that the two largest papers in the state prominently covered his hypocrisy is an important moment in this campaign.

Detroit Free Press: “Considering the emphasis Peters has put on the piles that once abutted the Detroit River, raising questions about his shares of Total S.A. is inbounds.”
