Donald Trump is coming back to Michigan on Friday.

The Republican presidential nominee holds a rally at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.

This marks Trump’s fifth visit to Michigan since he accepted the party’s nomination in July.

Trump has made two trips to Detroit, held a rally in Dimondale and visited a church and water treatment plant in Flint.

With one debate down and two to go, the election is in peak mode.

Matt Grossmann is a political science expert at Michigan State University.

He says Oakland County typically swings Republican but: “It’s not necessarily a place that you would automatically identify with Donald Trump. So it’s an opportunity for him to, to nail down people who usually vote Republican but may not yet be on board with him.”

Grossmann says Michigan has moved up the list of battleground states.
