Final details: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton coming to West Michigan

Trump, Clinton coming to West Michigan Monday

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - In just two days, we will know our next commander in chief but before that, each candidate is focused on West Michigan.

Local campaign offices for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now "all hands on deck" as the two candidates hold critical rallies Monday, Nov. 7, in the Grand Rapids area.

Clinton will be making a stop at 4 p.m. to Grand Valley State University's Allendale campus. Doors for that event will open at 2 p.m. at the GVSU Fieldhouse, 10915 S. Campus Drive.

Those interested in attending can RSVP online.

Trump and running mate Mike Pence are slated to attend an 11 p.m. rally at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. Doors will open at 8 p.m. -- supporters can RSVP for that event on the campaign website.

Since news of the appearances broke, campaign leaders from both Clinton and Trump are gearing up for the events that they say are big for their candidates, as well as West Michigan.

The latest Real Clear Politics polling average gives Clinton a slight lead in Michigan at 4.7 percent in a four-way race.

 

"The fact that he's coming for the second time in the past week and a half shows how important West Michigan is to Donald Trump and consolidating the support of Republicans here," said Evan Stambaugh, the Michigan field assistant for the Trump campaign.

On the democratic side:

"I’ve been doing this for decades now, and I can’t remember a presidential candidate coming to the city of Grand Rapids the night before a critical election," said Traci Kornak, chair for the 3rd Congressional District Democratic Party.

"I think what it does is that it speaks to the importance of this election and the importance of voting."
