Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand with MSNBC host Chris Hayes at town hall, March 18, 2019 | Andrew Roth
U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) will be returning to the Mitten for three presidential campaign stops next week, according to her campaign.
Gillibrand is launching a “Trump Broken Promises” bus tour on July 11 and 12 through Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, hitting on the president’s “lies and empty commitments to the American people.” She also will roll out several policy initiatives, her campaign said. The swing was first reported by MLive.
The Birmingham-Bloomfield Dems announced that Gillibrand’s event is at 10 a.m. July 12 at the Birmingham Unitarian Church, 38651 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, Mich. 48304. The Lansing event is slated for the evening, according to the campaign. Details on the Flint event haven’t been released.
Gillibrand did two stops in Oakland County in March, an MSNBC town hall and a Fems for Dems event, which was attended by both Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel.
Both Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg have announced July events in Michigan. The NAACP convention later this month will feature several contenders: former U.S. Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), U.S. Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). The two-night Democratic presidential debate is slated for July 30 and 31 in Detroit.
