Headline Goes Here

LANSING, Mich. - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land says she's submitted enough petition signatures to get a spot on the August primary ballot.

Land says she collected more than 25,000 signatures from all of Michigan's 83 counties. They were given to state election officials Monday, three weeks before the April 22 deadline.

Land is from the Grand Rapids area. She's a former secretary of state and a former Kent County clerk. She'll likely face Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters in the fall election.
