Some say Republicans are botching a shot at a U.S. Senate seat in Michigan

  Are Republicans botching the chance to win a U.S. Senate seat in Michigan? One analysis says they are. Democrats certainly hope so.


Terri Lynn Land
U.S. Rep. Gary Peters
  Tim Alberta, at the National Journal, writes that Republicans have not rallied behind former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land as their choice and that some hope to lure U.S. Reps. Dave Camp or Justin Amash into the fray.
  Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, a Bloomfield Township Democrat, jumped in early once U.S. Sen. Carl Levin announced he was retiring at the end of his term and has now had months to raise money and campaign while Republicans dawdle.
  Is it possible Republicans will rally around a candidate after their every-other-year leadership meeting on Mackinac Island in September?
  Even that's not a certainty, the National Journal opines.
