Republicans and Democrats roll into Livonia

Livonia will be the center of Michigan’s political landscape on Thursday.  

Republicans and Democrats are both planning big rallies in the Detroit suburb tomorrow.

The Republicans roll into town first. Their event will be headlined by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.  

The event’s being called “CommMITT to the Comeback” rally. Top Republican candidates will be there, from Attorney General Bill Schuette to U.S. Senate nominee Terri Lynn Land. 

Noticeably absent is Gov. Rick Snyder.

A few hours later, it will be the Democrats' turn to stump in Livonia.

Their rally will be headlined by outgoing U.S. Sen. Carl Levin. 

But why is everybody going to Livonia at the same time? A Republican spokeswoman says Livonia is “an important part of Michigan's comeback," while a Democratic spokesman says for them it “worked best based on everyone's schedule.”
