Sen. Kamala Harris, the vice president nominee and running mate of Democrat Joe Biden, will return to Detroit to campaign on Sunday (October 25), nine days before the November 3 election.
Harris had previously visited Flint, Oakland County and Detroit on September. 22. During the earlier stop in Detroit, she said, a path toward victory for Biden "runs straight through" Michigan.
Biden's campaign announced Harris's upcoming visit on Friday then stated "additional details to follow."
Harris recently made headlines in an interview with The Grio, stating,“I don’t believe that anyone has to vote for us. I believe we have to earn their vote.”
The Trump campaign has targeted support from Black male voters with moves including working with rap icon Ice Cube on a plan to address issues pertaining to the Black community.
“You have seen a person who’s the president of the United States refuse to speak the words ‘Black Lives Matter,” Harris stated when asked how Black men are being considered by the Democratic presidential ticket. “Every Black man I know has a dream for himself or his family now or in the future,” the senator stated while detailing solutions she and Joe Biden plan to implement to address problems facing the Black community.”
President Donald Trump last visited Michigan on Saturday for a rally that drew thousands of people in Muskegon. His running mate, Vice President Mike Pence, spoke at a rally in Waterford on Thursday (October 22).
Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes in 2016, his smallest margin of victory nationally. But polling has found Biden ahead. Biden had a 9 percentage point lead between September 30-October 3.
