Campaigns focusing on Michigan leading up to election
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We are heading into the final weekend before the election and the presidential campaigns are focusing hard on Michigan.
Hillary Clinton will be in Detroit Friday, capping off a week that saw visits by both presidential candidates and many of their supporters here in Michigan.
"We are standing against the possibility of returning and normalizing discrimination,” said Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Clinton courted voters in the crucial state of North Carolina Thursday night alongside former rival Bernie Sanders, who was here in Michigan earlier this week stumping for Clinton.
She is now heading here to Michigan and other Midwestern states hoping to boost support here.
Both Clinton and Donald Trump have been using supporters like their spouses and children, even former rivals over the last week to push voters to the polls.
Both are hitting Michigan very hard with just four days left until the election.
Thursday, Newschannel 3 had a one on one interview with Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence as he held a rally with Ted Cruz at the Air Zoo in Portage.
"I understand that office holders make their own decisions, but what is inspiring to me is to see the way so many independents, democrats and republicans are rallying around Donald Trump's message to make America great again,” said Gov. Mike Pence.
Both candidates have been pushing hard here in Michigan and Pennsylvania this week because neither state has in-person early voting, requiring the campaigns to intensify turnout efforts in the days leading up to the election to get as many people out to the polls as possible.
