Nate Silver is a liberal, too, or at least I've seen him on either TDS or Maher's show-he predicted Obama's re-election in 2012.
Terri Lynn Land (R) has a pretty good lead in the polls over Gary Peters (D) to replace Carl Levin in the Senate. Neither candidate have run ads of their own, but a special interest group is running ads against Peters, with an alleged cancer victim who had her insurance cut off.
I say alleged not because I don't think that a person with cancer could lose her coverage, more because I mistrust all political ads, especially those from special interest groups.
