There is less than a week before Michigan voters go to the polls.

High-profile allies for the Clinton and Trump campaigns will be in Michigan Wednesday. 

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-VT, will be stumping for votes for Democrat Hillary Clinton in Kalamazoo and Traverse City. Clinton will need Sanders' supporters. They gave him the win in Michigan’s presidential primary earlier this year.

Donald Trump Jr. has stops planned at college campuses in East Lansing and Allendale.  His sister, Ivanka will be meeting with a businesswomen's group in Troy on Wednesday evening.  

Later this week, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and Eric Trump, are expected to campaign in Michigan.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump attended rallies in Grand Rapids and Warren this past Monday. And this past Sunday, Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine campaigned for votes in Michigan.

This is not just a campaign of personal appearances.

Both the Clinton and Trump campaigns are also reportedly buying up more TV ad time in Michigan between now and Election Day.

While polls have shown Hillary Clinton clearly leading, recent polls have shown the race narrowing in Michigan and around the nation.
