Peters, Land remain close in Senate fundraising

Terri Lynn Land

Democrat Gary Peters and Republican Terri Lynn Land are continuing to raise millions of dollars for their U.S. Senate campaigns in Michigan.

Peters on Tuesday says he raised between $1.3 million and $1.4 million in the first three months of the year. Land last week reported taking in $1.5 million, including $100,000 of her own money.

Neither candidate disclosed how much they spent in the first quarter or how much cash they have on hand. Detailed reports were due Monday.

Peters, a third-term congressman from suburban Detroit, says he's raised $4.8 million overall. Land, a former Michigan secretary of state, says she's collected $5 million, including $1.7 million she gave to her campaign.

Peters and Land are in a tight race to succeed retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
