An Oakland County rally brought Trump back to Michigan on Friday.

The rally was Trump’s fifth Michigan event, but his supporters showed no signs of slowing down.

Attendees stood in the rain for hours before Trump’s rally began. Some got there as early as 10:00 a.m. for a 5:00 p.m. event.

Trump appears to view Michigan as key to the road to the White House. And while Trump may want to be in the White House, he also continually brought up that he is a political outsider.

"I’m an outsider fighting for you," he said. "We have a movement like they’ve never seen in this country before."

Polls show Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton leads Trump in Michigan.

Oakland County tends to swing Republican, and Trump needs those votes to take the state and its 16 votes in the Electoral College.
