Bill Clinton makes surprise Detroit visit

DETROIT – With Donald Trump making an appearance in Warren and sending his family and running mate to Detroit and the surrounding suburbs all week, Hillary Clinton hauled out her biggest gun.

Bill Clinton rolled into town Wednesday night for a closed door meeting with the movers and shakers in Detroit and Wayne County in an attempt to rally the African American vote just days before the election.

Invited were key pastors, elected officials and the behind the scenes folks who make Detroit happen for the Democrats.

"This is going to help energize people, we want to make history on Nov. 8th," Detroit City Councilman Scott Benson told us.

Benson was included in the two hour meeting where influencers spent time with the former president.

Michigan is a firewall state for Clinton she should not be having to spend time or money here but that's exactly what's happening. Hillary Clinton has scheduled a get out the vote rally in Detroit on Friday.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. and his sister Ivanka made campaign appearances in Detroit and the suburbs.

"He's going to dream big for our country. He's not going to be afraid of our success," Ivanka Trump told a crowd of about 1,000 in Troy.
