It's official: Terri Lynn Land's friends think she's a shitty candidate

It wasn't so long ago that Terri Lynn Land was up in the polls and the national media was declaring her to be a top-notch "get" as a candidate. Then, she spoke, everyone chuckled and the national media went silent ... until National Journal figured out that the joke was on them all along.

"She wasn't anybody's first choice, for a variety of different reasons. And we're seeing why," said one longtime Michigan GOP heavyweight who asked not to be identified because of his friendship with Land.

Loving this
90 days before the general, and:

1. Republicans are lukewarm on Land.

2. The tea party hates Snyder because Obamacare.

3. Justin Amash went after Brian Ellis and Pete Hoekstra last night. (He refused to take Ellis's concession call!)

Meanwhile, Democrats are united.

Now on Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott: Cotter vs. Jesus and Reagan

Meanwhile, Peters has named John Cherry as debate coordinator
John Cherry named Debate Coordinator for Gary Peters
Montrose-native Cherry said in a statement, "With Washington becoming more and more polarized, the role of our next U.S. Senator includes being able to make the case for Michigan in Congress. Both candidates already agree it is very important for Michiganders to hear directly from them about their vision for the state. Now we just have to settle logistics. I look forward to working with the Land campaign so we can make sure Michiganders have the robust, accessible debates they deserve."
Land and Peters in a debate?  Pass the popcorn.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

If Land refuses to participate in a single debate...
...then I anticipate (almost) all news organizations will (rightly) refrain from considering an endorsement of her for Senate. A bridge too far, methinks, although the impact of said endorsements in such an election are presumably muted.

(and I'm using the term 'debate' lightly, as there aren't too many debate-debates anymore)

Great Lakes, Great Times.

Peters' biggest problem
will be avoiding the appearance of beating her up. If she agrees to debate him at all.
