Michigan Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land has a new 30-second ad out taking on the Democratic line that Republicans like her are waging a "war on women." Land is facing Democratic congressman Gary Peters in November, and Peters has criticized Land's opposition to the so-called Paycheck Fairness Act.

"Congressman Gary Peters and his buddies want you to believe I'm waging a war on women," Land says in the ad. "Really? Think about that for a moment." Land gives the viewer some time. Watch the video below:

The Real Clear Politics poll average shows a tight race for Senate in Michigan. Land and Peters are vying for the seat held by retiring Democrat Carl Levin. Land was a two-term secretary of state, while Peters is a three-term congressman who voted for Obamacare.
