The major party presidential campaigns swing through the battleground states of Michigan and Ohio this week.

The campaigns say both states are crucial in the presidential race, now only weeks away.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden travels to Toledo and Cincinnati on Monday, touting his plans to rebuild the economy and trying to mobilize voter turnout.

The husband of his running mate, Kamala Harris, will also be in Huntington Woods and Brighton before joining Governor Whitmer and Senator Debbie Stabenow at an event in Lansing.

On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence campaigns at an automotive supplier in Grand Rapids.

The day before, the president’s son Eric Trump holds a Make America Great Again rally at a gun shop in New Hudson.
