LANSING, Michigan — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land says she's close to filing an amended financial disclosure statement to account for nearly $3 million she's given her campaign.

Spokeswoman Heather Swift says Land likely will fix the "clerical error" this week. Democrat Gary Peters Tuesday called on the ex-Michigan secretary of state to stop spending the money until addressing discrepancies his campaign says may be illegal.

The Detroit Free Press has reported neither Land nor her husband listed joint assets or checking accounts with more than $250,000. An election expert questioned if potential transfers of money from Land's husband violated the spirit of campaign-finance laws.

The Detroit News reported recently Land denied working for her family's real estate business despite being listed as an owner on earlier campaign donations she made.
