A last minute push to get voters to the polls in Michigan brings two big names from the campaign trail to the metro area.

Former President Bill Clinton held a private meeting at the Fellowship Chapel on Detroit’s west side.

Elected officials like Mayor Mike Duggan, along with pastors from all over the city, even the Reverend Jesse Jackson attended the closed door event.

News cameras were not allowed inside, but city leaders said the idea is to keep momentum going ahead of Tuesday, so these top leaders spread the message to their constituents and parishioners.

"Last couple of weeks theres been some concern about apathy. Oh we're going to win, we're going to win.  No, we've got to make sure, Detroit has to turn out and this is a part of it, we've got to get our community engaged,” said Detroit Councilman, Scott Benson.

On the other side of the ticket, Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka stopped in Troy on Wednesday.

She held a community rally along with a round table discussion with businesswoman from around the metro.

She will also be back on Thursday, pushing for the vote in Rochester.  The event begins at 7:30 a.m. To RSVP, email
