Michigan is getting a lot of attention this month from candidates for president - starting with Democrat Beto  O'Rourke, who made a campaign stop in Macomb County Monday.

People crowded into Hometown Heroes coffee shop in Centerline to see former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke.  Some said O'Rourke was already their preferred candidate.

Randy Madding says he wants to see as many candidates as he can - there's a lot at stake;

"We need to have civility and normalcy back into our country, we're too divided, too much violence, this isn't the country that we should have."

Later this month, President Donald Trump plans a campaign rally in Grand Rapids.
