WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is heading back to West Michigan, just nine days before the election.

The Trump campaign told 24 Hour News 8 the Republican businessman will be in Michigan, including the Grand Rapids area on Monday. Trump will be holding rallies at the DeltaPlex at noon and Macomb Community College at 3 p.m., according to the campaign’s website.

Dozens of people were already lined up outside the DeltaPlex early Monday morning. One of the first people in line told 24 Hour News 8 that she had been there since 10:13 p.m. Sunday.

The last time Trump was in Michigan was on Sept. 30 when he spoke to campaign volunteers at the Kent GOP headquarters and toured the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.

An EPIC-MRA poll released Thursday showed 41 percent of voters would choose Hillary Clinton if the election was held immediately. Thirty-four percent said they would vote for Trump. That put Clinton’s lead well outside the poll’s plus or minus 4 percent margin of error. However, the poll was taken before the FBI announced it would be searching a new batch of emails that may be relevant to their investigation into Clinton.

Tickets for Monday’s rallies are available on the campaign’s website.
