The event is expected to feature Republican candidate for Michigan Governor Bill Schuette and Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James as well as other party candidates and officials. EPIC-MRA polls show that both candidates are slightly behind their opponents Democrat Gretchen Whitmer and U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow respectively.

The V.P. came to Michigan back in August for a post-primary rally with the Michigan Republican Party as well as a campaign event for John James. Pence also came to the Battle Creek and Hillsdale areas back in May to deliver a commencement speech at Hillsdale College.
