SEN-MI: Peters Lead Widens

A new poll released today by EPIC-MRA poll in Michigan finds that Democratic candidate Gary Peters is leading Republican Terri Lynn Land in the U.S Senate race by six points, 45% to 39%. While the race is not critical for the GOP’s quest to win a majority in the U.S Senate, it would serve as a crushing defeat for Democrats if they lose a seat they have held blue for decades. The polls back in the spring suggested that this could be a very competitive race but now as labor day is upon us it seems Michigan is converting back to it’s blue roots.
