Democratic VP candidate Tim Kaine to campaign in Detroit

The Virginia senator is expected to talk about Hillary Clinton's economic plan, and why the election is high stakes for Michigan.

DETROIT - Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton, plan to campaign in Detroit on Tuesday afternoon.

Kaine is to deliver a speech on the economy at Focus: HOPE at 1200 Oakman Blvd., according to a news release from the campaign of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Kaine is also to discuss the high stakes of this election for Michiganders and Clinton's "vision for an America that is stronger together, with an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top," the release said.

The event starts at 2:30 p.m. It will be closed to the public because of space constraints.

Clinton was in Detroit Monday  for a voter registration event at Wayne State University. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held rallies in Grand Rapids and Novi and a fund-raiser in downtown Detroit on Sept. 30.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence also will be in Michigan this week, speaking at a Macomb County Republican Party fundraiser Monday evening.

The event - the Macomb County Lincoln Day dinner at Palazzo Grande Banquet Center in Shelby Township  - is sold out with more than 900 tickets sold.
