With the clock ticking down on the presidential campaign, Michigan and its 16 electoral votes are in the spotlight.
The candidates and the high-profile people campaigning for them are virtually tripping over each other as they criss-cross the state.
Yesterday Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., former President Bill Clinton, and Bernie Sanders were in Michigan. Today, Ivanka Trump is in Rochester, and Indiana Governor Mike Pence campaigns in Portage.
And there will be more rallies tomorrow. First Pence in Lansing, and then Hillary Clinton in Detroit’s Eastern Market, and Eric Trump will work his way through Michigan.
Detroit News business columnist Daniel Howes believes all this activity proves the Mitten is in play.
