President Donald Trump is seeking support from Michigan voters as he is scheduled to host a campaign rally in the crucial swing state later this month.
The Trump campaign announced on Thursday, Dec. 5, that the president will hold the rally at the Kellogg Arena, in Battle Creek, on Dec. 18 evening. The arena seats up to 6,200 people.
“President Trump is delivering on his promises, and he looks forward to celebrating those successes with the great men and women of Michigan this Christmas season,” the campaign’s National press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a tweet announcing the rally.
“Michigan is booming thanks to President Trump and jobs are coming back to the state. Since President Trump’s election, Michigan has added 75,000 new jobs,” McEnany said.
The campaign calls the next event “a Merry Christmas rally.”

The Michigan rally comes as President Trump is seeking to shore up support in key swing states, according to The Hill. Michigan is set to be a key battleground next year after the president won the state by over 10,000 votes, or 0.3 percent in 2016.
Last month, the president held rallies in Pennsylvania and Florida, two states he also narrowly won in 2016 that were crucial to his victory over Hillary Clinton.
At the most recent rally in Florida on Nov. 26, President Trump marked another success as his rally attracted a crowd of an estimated 20,000 and even more remarkably, with 24% being Democrats, 27% Hispanic.
