LANSING (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton is visiting Michigan next week to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer and U.S. Senate candidate Gary Peters.

The state Democratic Party says Clinton will headline an event Wednesday at the Riverfront Banquet Center in Flint. The public can get free tickets from Democratic Party offices in the Detroit area and in East Lansing, Saginaw, Bay City and Flint.

Doors to the political event open at 10:30 a.m.

Schauer is running against Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. Peters is facing former Republican Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land for a seat held by retiring Sen. Carl Levin.

Clinton’s wife, Hillary, campaigned for Schauer and Peters on Thursday in suburban Detroit.
