US Senate Candidate Terri Lynn Land Files More Than 25,000 Signatures

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Republican US Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land filed more than 25,000 signatures with the state Monday to appear on the ballot next November.

While in town she headed off criticism that she's trying to avoid the media during her bid for statewide office.

6 News Capitol Correspondent Tim Skubick has the story. 

"I want to thank the team, good job."

Former GOP Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land came back to her old office to file petition signatures to make sure her name is on the November ballot.

She's battling it out with democrat Gary Peters for the right to replace outgoing U.S. Senator Carl Levin. The Peters campaign accuses Ms. Land of hiding from the media in the bunker.

Ms. Land has done a number of radio shows, her campaign did hold a phone news conference last week, which the Peters campaign criticized because she didn't take a stance on some issues.

Though, on gay marriage she took a stance.

"I believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman," said Terri Lynn Land, republican candidate for senate.

On minimum wage she did not take a stance. "I'm open to looking at minimum wage," said Land.

The business community says it will cost jobs.

Land: "That's why we need to look at it, but its been awhile since we had an increase, so I want to be open to an increase."

Before the reporter could ask another question on the president's role in Crimea Ms. Land paused as her media secretary said that would be the last question, and it was.

"We'll have to wait and see how these meetings end up going."

Reporter: "So the president is doing a good job?"
Land: "I think that's the last question."

And with that, the eight question news conference was over as her campaign filed the signatures with the state elections bureau.

Afterwards, a reporter asked for one more question which she answered.

But when another reporter wanted to ask about campaign financing, she walked away.
