‘Grand’ finale: Trump, Clinton to spend final campaign day in GR

Posted at 11:48 PM, Nov 05, 2016

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Haven't you heard? Michigan is the new Ohio, apparently.

Donald Trump's and Hillary Clinton's campaigns confirm the candidates plan to hold rallies on the final day before the election in Grand Rapids, as Michigan is shaping up to be a pivotal, must-win state.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a rally Monday evening at 11 p.m. at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids, according to his campaign website.  Doors are scheduled to open at 8 p.m. You can find info and RSVP to the event here. Trump will be joined by his running mate Mike Pence.

Trump is also scheduled to hold a rally Sunday evening in Sterling Heights.

The announcement came just hours after Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton announced she'd be making a second stop to Michigan since Friday, when she appeared in Detroit. Clinton's campaign says she will be in Grand Rapids on Monday too for a get-out-the-vote rally at the Grand Valley State University Fieldhouse in Allendale. Doors open at 2 p.m., and the event begins at 4 p.m. People wishing to attend can register here.

Real Clear Politics now considers Michigan a toss-up state based on statewide polling averages showing a tightening race between Clinton and Trump, meaning the state’s 16 electoral votes are up for grabs. In all, 158 electoral votes are up for grabs in toss-up states, as tallied by Real Clear Politics.
