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.

U.S. Sen. Carl Levin isn't running for re-election.
