The environmental group League of Conservation Voters and the union American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees announced Thursday that they are funneling $2.1 million into the Michigan Senate race in support of Democratic candidate Gary Peters.

Peters, a three-term House member now making a bid for the Senate, is facing off against Republican Terri Lynn Land in a race that has already drawn millions in outside spending, including more than $5 million spent by the Koch-backed group Americans for Prosperity.
