Since Democratic U.S. Senator Carl Levin announced he won't seek re-election, candidates have been putting their names into the ring.
Republican candidate Terri Lynn Land travelled to Marquette Tuesday to connect with Upper Peninsula residents.
Land visited with the public and business owners to understand their concerns.
"My husband and I and our family looked at it and said we think we can serve this great state. Having served as Secretary of State for eight years, two terms, and local office as County Clerk, we know what folks in Michigan want and that's jobs and a stable economy," said Land.
She says if elected, she'll get Michigan government stability in Washington by pushing discussion about affordable health care for Michiganganders unrelated to Obamacare.
