INTERLOCHEN, Mich. (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Gary Peters is campaigning with Sen. Debbie Stabenow for a third straight day in Michigan.
The Democrats plan to stop Thursday at a downrigger fishing production plant in Interlochen, a water resources institute in Muskegon and a Lansing-area farm on Peters’ “Great Lakes Jobs” tour.
Peters, a three-term congressman, will face Republican Terri Lynn Land in November to fill the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
If elected, Peters says he will continue to be an outspoken champion for the Great Lakes and protect it from pollution and invasive species like Asian Carp.
Land last week spent three days campaigning in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula on her “Michigan First” tour. Her priorities include balancing the budget and repealing the federal health care law.
