Terri Lynn Land is running as a Republican to replace retiring incumbent Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.
She previously was the secretary of state of Michigan and a member of the Republican National Committee.
Land’s family also owns a successful real estate business; she has loaned $1 million to her own campaign.

Land often talks about growing up and working in a trailer park and motel her grandparents owned.
