  The campaign of Republican Michigan U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land says it raised about $2.15 million from donors in the latest quarter and got an additional $1.2 million from Land herself. Democrat Gary Peters says his campaign raised $1.95 million.

 Federal law requires U.S. Senate candidates to report their finances for April through June by next Tuesday.

 Peters spokeswoman Haley Morris says his campaign has raised $3.3 million so far this year and $6.7 million in all.

 Land is a former Michigan secretary of state. Peters is a third-term congressman from suburban Detroit.

 They're running to succeed retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
