Former Michigan secretary of state Terri Lynn Land (R) raised more than $1 million from individual donors for her Senate campaign during the third quarter of the year and chipped in about $1 million of her own money, her campaign announced Monday.

Land raised a total of $2.05 million, $1.05 million of which came from other donors. (Land took no money from federal PACs.) The remainder was a donation from Land's own pockets. She ended September with $2 million in the bank.

Several top Republicans have passed on the Senate race, making Land's path to the nomination appear pretty clear at present. The likely Democratic nominee is Rep. Gary Peters. Peters has not announced his third-quarter total. He had nearly $1.8 million in the bank at the end of the second quarter.
