Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is joining an ever-growing list of national leaders visiting Michigan to bring out the vote for their parties' candidates.

Clinton will campaign at a public event next Thursday for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Gary Peters and gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer. The Michigan Democratic Party said details will be announced soon.

Clinton's visit will follow First Lady  Michelle Obama's Detroit appearance tomorrow to campaign for Peters and Schauer.

Republican heavy hitters also have come to Michigan to drum up support for GOP candidates, including Governor Rick Snyder and U.S. Senate hopeful Terri Lynn Land.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie campaigned here in recent weeks. And former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is scheduled to do the same on Monday.
