Candidates’ attention turns to Michigan’s March 8 primary

Once the votes are counted in the Super Tuesday states, presidential candidates turn their attention to the next round of primaries – including Michigan’s in a week.

Republicans John Kasich and Marco Rubio have both scheduled campaign swings prior to the Thursday night GOP debate in Detroit. Kasich, in particular, has staked his future on a respectable showing in Michigan before the vote the following week in Ohio, where he serves as governor. Republican frontrunner Donald Trump also has events scheduled later this week in Macomb County and Cadillac.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has scheduled a rally at Michigan State University. He and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are to engage in a debate between the Democratic candidates Sunday in Flint.
