The latest in a steady stream of people campaigning for President Donald Trump in Michigan was his Vice President. Michigan Radio’s Lester Graham reports.

About 800 people trudged across a muddy field to get to the airport where Vice President Mike Pence spoke. He praised Trump for a strong economy, a strong military, supporting police, and condemning protests that sometimes became violent. The Vice President then told the crowd that Democratic candidate Joe Biden is a tool for the radical left.

“When it's all said and done, it's not gonna be whether America is more conservative or more liberal, whether America is more Republican or more Democrat, more red or more blue," said Pence. "I think the choice in this election is whether America remains America.”

Across the street from the campaign rally a small group of people held signs critical of the Trump administration.
