Former President Bill Clinton visits Michigan

Bill Clinton can't run for President again, but he can campaign for his wife.

- Former President Bill Clinton dropped by Michigan Wednesday to collect cash for his wife's campaign.

President Clinton stopped at the private fundraiser at Bingham Farms Wednesday. He gave us a quick wave as he ducked in to the fundraiser and bypassed protesters outside.

"It's a big deal that a President is here in mihciang, however, she is the candidate and she should be the one who shows up to these fundraisers," Savannah Fratrick with Young Republicans from Macomb County said.

In fairness, Hillary Clinton was in the Detroit area recently for a fundraiser. But like, last time, it was a private fundraiser, this time at the Binghan Farms home of Dorian Hermilin. Still, Republicans find that to be a sticking point.

"Twice now, she's come to Michigan and given no access to epeople and taken our money," Wayne Bradley with Michigan Republican Party said.

But that's tame compared to the Michigan Republican Party Chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel , Who said, " while she is more than willing to take money from Michigan residents, she can't even be bothered to attend her own campaign events here in Michigan."

The ticket for the private event was $2,700. Insiders say about 150 people attended the very secure and private event. Clinton spoke for 45 minutes, mostly about Hillary.

He did, however, have time to snap a selfie with Michael Zarkin, a 17 year old senior at Novi HIgh School.

It's too early to know how much money was raised in Wednesday's fundraiser.
