Land announced plans to run June 3 and said Monday that she's followed up with a filing. She says she'll spend the next several months listening to voters across Michigan and says the public deserves "a lot better from Washington."

Land and Peters are seeking to replace veteran Democratic U.S. Senator Carl Levin, who says he won't seek re-election in 2014.

Peters announced Monday that his campaign has raised $1 million since he entered the race May 1 and says he now has $1.8 million on hand for the race.
