Quote of the Day, Of COURSE Gary Peters (D-CAND, Michigan-SEN) Is Still A Misogynistic Hypocrite edition.

I really should have expected that, honestly.

Former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, R-Byron Center, went first by slamming U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, claiming he is a hypocrite, flip-flopper and beholden to President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“Whenever men tell me about a war on women, I’m suspicious,” she said to a packed house at the Suburban Collection Showplace convention center in Novi. “Can you say hypocrisy? I’m not going to be lectured to by a man who pays the women in his office 67 cents on the dollar.”

Terri is, of course, referring to the minor awkwardness that Peters – like pretty much all the other Democratic party fatcats – talk up gender pay inequality, but never actually do anything about it close to home. As that NRSC (yes, I know*) article makes clear, Gary Peters is merely the worst of a bad bunch of Democratic Senate candidates with screaming cases of entitlement and absolutely no shame whatsoever.  And here’s something to also note: ever notice that you never read stories about how Democrats have raised their female staffers’ pay, in light of the situation?  It’s like they’ve decided to address the problem via the classic Beltway Establishment method of ignoring it completely and hoping that the media will go find another chew toy.

All of this via:

…and if you are a Michigan voter, Terri Lynn Rand would quite like you to vote for her.

Terri Lynn Land (R) outraised Gary Peters (D) in 4Q 2013 (Michigan Senate).

It’s stuff like this that is making Democrats ever-so-apprehensive about the open seat race there:

Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) raised $1 million in the last three months of 2013 according to numbers provided to The Hill, continuing his steady fundraising pace but falling behind the $1.66 million his Senate opponent pocketed in the same time frame.

Peters has consistently posted $1 million quarters since he got into the race. Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R) matched his $1 million quarter and added $600,000 from her own pocket, part of the $5 million she’s promised to spend in the race.

Stu Rothenberg: Michigan Senate race no longer a lock for the Democrats.

Hey, tell me again how utterly doomed the Republican party is next year.

Republicans don’t need to win Michigan to get the majority in the Senate, but the Wolverine State could become a serious takeover target later next year.

[snip]

Make no mistake, [Democratic candidate Gary] Peters has shown remarkable political agility and starts this race with the edge, but this open seat should no longer be considered safe.

[snip*]

The Michigan Senate race is now rated Democrat Favored according to Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
