Pence's visit comes on the heels of several Michigan visits from President Trump.
In 2016, Michigan emerged as a key battleground state in Trump's path to election victory, including winning former Democratic stronghold Macomb County. In that election, Trump won the state by 13,107 votes.
As campaign trails ramp up for 2020, Michigan again appears to be in the spotlight for stump speeches by the president and his challengers.
President Trump was in Warren in January, amid his impeachment trial in the Senate, and in Battle Creek back in December, the same night the House of Representatives voted on the two articles of impeachment.
