The shift in momentum for Peters comes as the pair participates in a candidate forum at the Detroit Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference.

Peters is leading Land by 6 percentage points, according to EPIC-MRA and by 4.3 percentage points, according to WDIV/The Detroit News.

In the EPIC-MRA poll, Peters’ lead is thanks in large part to support from female voters.

Last month, Land criticized Peters in an ad called “Really?” which took aim at the so-called ‘war on women.’
