GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The 2016 presidential campaign is invading Michigan again this week with former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina headed to Novi and East Lansing, Republican nominee Donald Trump returning to Toledo, and Chelsea Clinton headed to the state to stump for her mom, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Fiorina, who dropped out of the presidential race in March, joined other Republican women in Novi on Monday and will be in East Lansing on Tuesday to participate in a panel discussion titled "All Issues are Women's Issues." The forum is geared toward dispelling a theme used by Democrats that Republicans are waging a war on women.
"From national security to jobs and the economy, all issues have a deep impact on women and are incredibly important to us all," Ronna Romney McDaniel, chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party, said in a statement.
Fiorina was in Michigan last September to attend the state Republican Party's biennial conference on Mackinac Island.
On Wednesday, Trump will return to Toledo for yet another campaign stop in the pivotal state of Ohio. Trump was last in Toledo on July 27, right after the Republican National Convention and as the Democrats were wrapping up their convention in Philadelphia. All the candidates have been making frequent visits to Ohio. For more information on the 1 p.m. Trump rally at the Stranahan Theater in Toledo, go to https://www.donaldjtrump.com/schedule/.
And Chelsea Clinton is coming back to Michigan to raise money and campaign for her mom Thursday and Friday. She'll attend a private fund-raiser in East Lansing and make public stops in there and in Grand Rapids on Thursday, and head to Flint on Friday. She was last in Michigan before the state's presidential primary in March.
