A Democratic super PAC affiliated with Senate majority leader Harry Reid has an ad accusing a female Senate candidate of being "backwards" on women's issues. The 30-second spot from Senate Majority PAC targets Terri Lynn Land, the likely GOP Senate candidate from MIchigan.

"Backwards: That's the direction Terri Lynn Land would take Michigan women," says the ad's voiceover. Watch it below:

Land, who is facing off against Democratic House member Gary Peters for the open Senate seat, released an ad two weeks ago that seemed to predict this line of attack. Watch that ad below:

Should Democrats be worried about losing a seat that'd been held for decades by retiring Democrat Carl Levin? The Real Clear Politics poll average shows Peters with just a 1.6-point lead, and Land has led in a few recent polls. The race is a toss-up, which helps explain why Democratic groups like Senate Majority PAC are starting early at defining one of the GOP's several female Senate candidates as anti-woman.
