U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders will be in Michigan tomorrow urging voters to elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump. 

The Clinton campaign says Sanders will talk about how Secretary Clinton's economic plan will work for everyone, and how Donald Trump's plan will instead benefit the very wealthy.

He is expected to promote raising the minimum wage, combating climate change, and moving to sustainable energy.

The Vermont senator is scheduled to speak at rallies in Ann Arbor, Dearborn, East Lansing, and Grand Rapids, all areas where he had strong support during the presidential primary.

Sanders won Michigan in the Democratic primary earlier this year, but threw his support behind Sec. Clinton after she received the Democratic Party's nomination in July.
