Michigan Becomes Battleground, Presidential Candidates and Surrogates Spend Final Day Before Election Around State
Tuesday is the day Americans head to the polls. The race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is tight, the latest polls show, and winning Michigan has become more critical to each candidate than usual.
Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, said on ABC's Good Morning America on Monday that Michigan is among several states that are typically blue, that are critical for a Donald Trump victory. Meanwhile, a Clinton victory in typically-red Florida, would most likely deliver the Presidency for her.
Both Clinton and Trump will make Monday appearances in Michigan. Trump, already in the state, held a rally Sunday evening in Sterling Heights. Mike Pence campaigned in the state over the weekend as well. Donald Trump and Mike Pence will head to Grand Rapids on Monday while Hillary Clinton will be in Allendale.
Former President Bill Clinton is already in the state stumping for Hillary, having made Sunday appearances in both Flint and Lansing, and President Obama will also visit Michigan on Monday, making a "get out the vote" stop in Ann Arbor, on behalf of Clinton.
Sarah Palin campaigned for Trump in Northern Michigan on Sunday and Ivanka Trump will make a Hudsonville stop in Michigan on Monday.
Polls will be open on Tuesday from 7am until 8pm.
