The Democractic nominee for president, Hillary Clinton.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will make a post-debate stop Monday in Detroit.

This will be Clinton’s first Michigan visit since August 11th. The trip coincides with the October 11th deadline to register to vote in the November election.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has made five trips to Michigan since the Republican national convention.

The Clinton campaign hopes to avoid an Election Day surprise like the presidential primary loss to Senator Bernie Sanders last March. Sanders campaigned for Clinton in Michigan last week.

Clinton is swinging through battleground and near-battleground states. Michigan has gone with the Democratic nominee in every presidential election for the past two dozen years, but Republican nominee Donald Trump is making a play for upper Midwest industrial states, so Democrats are on guard.
