Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Land has sharply shifted course in recent days in her responses to questions of whether she supported the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler in 2008 and 2009 with her campaign now saying she would have voted for the bailout had she been in the Senate at the time.
In comments last Friday to The Oakland Press and Tuesday to Gongwer News Service, Ms. Land's spokesperson, Heather Swift, said Ms. Land "supports the action taken to protect the auto industry." She said the comments do not represent a change of position for Ms. Land.

An individual with the campaign of Rep. Stacy Erwin Oakes for Senate has formally filed a complaint with the Bureau of Elections that a nonprofit violated campaign finance law days after the group came under heavy scrutiny for potentially engaging in express election advocacy, which is prohibited by law.
