GOP Senate Hopeful Flubs Election Date

Aspiring senator Terri Lynn Land may want to see about locking down a new scheduler, lest she find herself staring out into an empty hotel ballroom later this fall.

An HOH tipster passed along a campaign email Land blasted out to supporters Tuesday night in which the former Michigan secretary of state enthusiastically proclaimed that she’d like to sew up her race lickety-split.

“People know we can win the US Senate race in Michigan this year,” Land assured her followers.

That’d be one helluva of political coup — considering retiring Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., isn’t stepping down until January 2015.

Perhaps Land could use a bit of a refresher?

Team Land did not respond to an email request seeking clarification about the very off-year grandstanding.

    Um, so I take it there is nothing better to report today. Roll Call actually pays you to write pointless articles? I went into the wrong profession.

      This is as scandalous as when TMZ publishes a photo of an actress eating a cheeseburger *gasp*. Is this the level of “journalism” that you aspire to Mr. Rojas?

    This is a small gaffe, not a news story. Even though I’m NOT voting for her, I’m ALSO not interested in jumping up and down over a small misstatement.
