VP candidates Pence, Kaine both in Michigan this week

Oct 17, 2016

Both major party candidates for the next U.S. vice president plan campaign stops in Michigan this week.

Donald Trump’s running mate is up first. Indiana Governor Mike Pence is scheduled to headline a dinner hosted by the Macomb County Republican Party tonight.

Traditionally blue-collar Macomb remains one of Trump’s few bright spots in Michigan, where most recent polls show Hillary Clinton regaining a healthy lead, though none has her topping 50% of the total vote.

Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Senator Time Kaine, will pay a visit to Detroit Tuesday.

Kaine will be accompanied by his wife, Anne Holton. He’ll deliver a speech on the economy, and discuss the “high stakes of this election for Michiganders,” according to the Clinton campaign.
