“It’s been a really exciting week,” said Michigan Democratic Spokesman Josh Pugh, “it’s not everyday that a former President comes to Michigan and we’re just really flattered that the President is coming to town.”

It shows that he cares a lot of this fall, said Pugh, referring to November elections.

Clinton took time to tour the made in Detroit watch factory Shinola before his appearance at Cobo Center.

Last year, Vice President Joe Biden spoke at the annual dinner.
