Peters not enjoying his media coverage in the last two weeks of the campaign
LANSING, Mich., October 21, 2020 – In Case You Missed It – Gary Peters is feeling the heat as Election Day grows near and critiques of his failed six years as a senator take hold.
Michigan media is hearing the complaints about Peters’ lackluster campaign, his invisibility at Congressional committee hearings, low voter ID numbers throughout the campaign, large numbers of undecided voters, and a lack of awareness of anything he has accomplished—even after millions have been wasted on his boring campaign ads.
- “He's run a lot of ads that have left no impression.” (Gongwer, 10/21/20)
Worse yet for Peters, in an interview on Detroit television, an anchor challenged Peters to respond to accusations about Peters and why he is struggling.
That is because these critiques are hitting home, pushing the race into a virtual tie in a recent New York Times poll:
- “For instance, in his ads he’s criticized you for initially downplaying COVID-19, supporting Medicaid For All, that you’re a career politician. That you’re largely invisible and ineffective in your job.”
“Gary Peters is feeling the heat for running a boring, empty campaign in which millions have been spent trying to prop up a career politician with no known accomplishments. Those ads aren’t working and neither is Peters’ response for why he has been an invisible Senator,” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox.
