Candidates In The Final Push To Get Out The Vote Before November 6

A "Vote Here" sign

In just a week, Michigan voters will pick a new governor. Capitol Correspondent Cheyna Roth reports the Republican and Democratic candidates will be traveling the state as the clock ticks down to Election Day. 


It’s all about keeping voter enthusiasm high. Democratic candidate Gretchen Whitmer has more than 70 campaign stops planned over the next few days. 

And Republican candidate Bill Schuette says he’s got his own campaign stops planned. 

The candidates have brought in some heavy hitters to encourage people to vote.

Vice President Mike Pence was in Michigan Monday to stump for Republican candidates. And former president Barack Obama was in Michigan last week – and his vice president, Joe Biden plans to be in the state on Thursday. 

Before becoming the newest Capitol reporter for Michigan Public Radio Network, Cheyna Roth was an attorney. She spent her days fighting it out in court as an assistant prosecuting attorney for Ionia County.
