TRAVERSE CITY — Dr. Jill Biden is set to visit Traverse City Tuesday.

Biden, wife of Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, announced the latest stop on a tour of western Michigan as the November general election draws closer.

She appeared in Grand Rapids and Battle Creek for events earlier this month, according to a campaign press release.

It follows a Sept. 9 visit from Biden himself to the mitten state.

Vice President Mike Pence previously visited northern Michigan for a Aug. 28 rally at Cherry Capital Airport and incumbent President Donald Trump also paid the state a visit.

Michigan is expected to prove a battleground state — Donald Trump took the state by nearly 11,000 votes in 2016.

The release promises more information to come, and did not detail what Biden’s visit will entail.
