Trump supporters wait in the rain for a chance to see the candidate

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is in Michigan today. People lined up in the rain hours before Trump is scheduled to speak at a venue in Oakland County.

Lisa Gustin has been to five Trump events, including one in Toledo, Ohio. This time she brought her 14-year-old son, Gabriel.

Gabriel can’t vote yet, but says he’s active because he likes the Republicans’ vice presidential candidate, Mike Pence

“I’m in it because I’ve been into politics since I was born practically.”

The subject of jobs has been a talking point in this this election. Linda Williams is a small business owner in Brighton. Williams says she likes that Trump runs businesses.

“And I think Michigan over these years has gotten into terrible shape and I think we need someone that cares about the people.”

Trump was scheduled to speak at 5 p.m. A Detroit News poll shows Trump is trailing in Michigan, but supporters say his message on trade has appeal to blue collar voters.
