GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land is announcing that her campaign raised nearly $1.7 million during the last three months of 2013.

The total announced Tuesday includes $600,000 of the former Michigan secretary of state's own money.

Land and Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters are the two leading candidates to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Carl Levin.

In six month, Land raised more than $3.7 million heading into the election year, including $1.6 million of her own money. Her campaign didn't release how much cash she has in the bank after spending.

Spending on the race is expected to total tens of millions of dollars. Polls have showed Peters and Land evenly matched.

Campaign-finance reports aren't due until Jan. 31.
