Republicans court new Michigan US Senate candidate

Lead in text: 
Small is reportedly very close to Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder who has come under fire from some "Tea Party" activists recently.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee met this week with Oakland County District Court Judge Kim Small about the open Senate seat in Michigan, according to two people with knowledge of the meeting. Former Michigan secretary of state Terri Lynn Land is currently the GOP frontrunner, but Small presents a potentially interesting alternative whom the national GOP is taking seriously.
