SHARE GOP cancels spending in Michigan Senate race

LANSING, Mich. — Republicans are canceling TV ad spending planned for the final two weeks of Michigan’s U.S. Senate race, signaling that the GOP is investing in other races in its drive for the Senate majority.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled nearly $1 million in ads for the weeks of Oct. 21 and Oct. 28, according to a political operative who tracks ad spending. Democrat Gary Peters leads Republican Terri Lynn Land in Michigan.

Land and her allies spent $18 million on advertising through September, while Peters and his supporters spent $14 million. Republicans are hoping to net six seats to control the Senate.

Other outside groups, too, are bailing on Michigan, suggesting it’s fallen out of reach for Land.
