Democrat's Lead in US Senate Race Erodes

Lead in text: 
Republican Terri Lynn Land has seen her support jump by three percent since the last poll.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters continues to hold a lead over Republican Terri Lynn Land in the race for Michigan's open U.S. Senate seat - but it's shrinking. With less than 10 weeks until the election, Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, had a 45%-39% lead over Land, a two-time former Michigan secretary of state, said a survey of 600 likely voters completed Monday by EPIC-MRA of Lansing.
