Trump Targets Michigan with New Ad Buy

The Donald Trump campaign says it plans to air a series of television advertisements in Michigan promoting the Republican’s bid for the White House.

Trump supporters say they believe the GOP presidential nominee is within striking distance of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in both Pennsylvania and Michigan.

So the campaign is making those states part of a roughly $10 million ad blitz officials say will highlight Trump’s plan to offer tax relief to middle class voters.

By contrast Clinton has reportedly spent more than $75 million on national ad buys, including commercials airing in Michigan.

Trump has campaigned in Michigan twice in recent weeks.

He’s scheduled to attend a Detroit church Saturday and sit for an interview with an African American-oriented television show as part of his effort to reach out to the black community.
