Terri Lynn Land
Terri Lynn Land
Boy, Terri Lynn Land, the Republican Senate candidate in Michigan, sure does not want to denounce her supporters at Right to Life of Michigan who suggested that her opponent, Democratic Rep. Gary Peters, is opposed to an extreme anti-abortion bill because he "wants to make sure abortion is accessible and cheap for his daughters." That charge came last week, and Land is still silent on that attack and on how she'll campaign going forward:
U.S. Rep. Gary Peters pledged Wednesday that the children of candidates will be kept out of the U.S. Senate campaign and asks that his Republican opponent make the same commitment.

Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, wrote an open letter to GOP candidate Terri Lynn Land, the former two-time secretary of state, urging her to sign a pledge to keep negative attacks on either of their children out of their competitive race for an open Senate seat.

Seriously, if you can't say you won't attack your opponent's kids, that says a lot about the campaign you intend to run. Land's answer—or non-answer—here will be telling.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
