Bill Clinton makes surprise stop in Detroit Wednesday

Bill Clinton made a surprise stop in Detroit Wednesday night.

The purpose of Clinton's visit was to meet with religious and political leaders at Fellowship Chapel on Outer Drive. The private session is meant to help the African-American vote for Election Day, the Detroit News reports.

His wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is expected to arrive in Detroit Friday for a Get Out the Vote rally. She is expected to be joined by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and has stops in Kalamazoo and Traverse City the same day.

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Wednesday released the following statement regarding Bill Clinton's campaign stop in Detroit:

"It seems fitting that a family that works as hard as the Clinton's to avoid transparency would keep even a campaign stop a secret from the voters. However, given Bill's dealings with the Clinton Foundation and 'Bill Clinton, Inc.,' we shouldn't expect much better from a potential Hillary Clinton White House.

"Voters shouldn't accept secretive dealings and blatant attempts to avoid transparency laws from elected officials at any level, and especially not from their President. I'm confident they'll send a strong message to the Clintons on Election Day that they want, and demand, better from their next Commander-in-Chief."
