Two presidential hopefuls are in Michigan today.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is making his first visit to Michigan.

He’s holding rallies at Eastern Michigan University, and at a union hall in Dearborn. Sanders is expected to talk about his plan to make college tuition-free, raising the minimum wage, and strengthening the middle class.

Meanwhile, Ohio Gov. John Kasich starts his two-day run through Michigan in Allendale, on the campus of Grand Valley State University.

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra and Michigan Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof will join Kasich at the town hall meeting on Monday morning.

The governor of Ohio is also the former U.S House Budget Committee chairman.

He’ll make stops in Macomb County Monday night and in Livonia on Tuesday.
