GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — On the campaign trail in battleground Michigan, former Vice President Joe Biden will be in Grand Rapids Friday.

Biden, the Democratic nominee to challenge President Donald Trump, will talk about helping the economy recover from the coronavirus pandemic, his campaign said. He’ll also attend a mobilization event.

The two afternoon events are largely virtual and do not appear to be open to the public.

Michigan is considered a key win for both parties in the path to the White House. Trump won it narrowly in 2016, but has been trailing Biden in the polls here.
