      Senate candidates speak at Mackinac Island

      U.S. Senate candidates Terri Lynn Land and Democrat Gary Peters have made their pitch to Michigan business and political leaders gathering on Mackinac Island. Land, a Republican former secretary of state, repeatedly railed against "Washington" during her appearance Wednesday at a Mackinac Policy Conference forum. She says she would repeal and replace the federal health care law and supports building the Keystone XL pipeline. Peters, a Democratic congressman, says he was proud to support the rescue package for Detroit automakers while Land opposed it. Both candidates vying to succeed retiring Sen. Carl Levin say they support funding a customs plaza so a new Detroit-Windsor bridge is built. The forum hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber's political action committee wasn't a debate. Neither candidate was present while the other spoke.
