As we enter the so-called “silly season” of political campaigning in the run-up to the general elections, the airwaves are being bombarded with negative ads. Terri Lynn Land and her conservative/corporatist supporters have spent $10 million on ads attacking Congressman Gary Peters, many of which have been debunked by national fact checking groups. Land, who is behind in 16 recent polls, is going on the air this week with more attack ads, aided by money from the National Republican Senate Committee, apparently to prove that the national Republicans haven’t completely abandoned her tanking campaign.
Today, Gary Peters is releasing a new television ad titled “Generations”, a positive one that emphasizes his deep roots in our state as a five-generation Michigander and his fiscal conservatism in Congress:
It’s nice to see Peters confident enough about his campaign that he doesn’t have to return fire with endless negative campaign attacks against Land, no matter how easy a target she is.
