The Senate Leadership Fund is investing an additional $5.6 million into the Michigan Senate race. The new spending, which begins on 10/20, ensures SLF will be on air in Michigan all the way through Election Day.
Public polling shows a tight race for the Michigan Senate seat. A NYT/Siena survey released Monday showed a 1-point race, with incumbent Democrat Gary Peters underperforming the top of the ticket. Peters has been routinely criticized as an unimpressive, underachieving Senator – and the tight polling shows Michiganders agree.
The Senate Leadership Fund previously announced it would spend $9 million in the Michigan Senate race in October. The additional $5.6 million in spending brings the total investment from SLF to $14.6 million.
According to OpenSecrets, Democratic Super PAC Senate Majority PAC has already spent nearly $19 million and counting to bail out American’s most anonymous Senator.
“John James has outshined Gary Peters in every measurable way, candidate to candidate. The tremendous amount of outside money Democrats are spending to bail out the most anonymous Senator in America speaks volumes about how they really view this race – and we are keeping the pressure on as James’ wingmen.” -SLF President Steven Law
