Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is expected to speak at the 12th Annual Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce breakfast Monday morning at the MGM Grand Ballroom in Detroit.

His appearance will come just one day after the Democratic presidential debate in Flint where both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders called for his resignation.

Snyder tweeted his defense and also released a statement on Sunday that read: "In the coming days, political candidates will be leaving Flint and Michigan. They will not be staying to help solve the crisis, but I am committed to the people of Flint. I will fix this crisis and help move Flint forward. Long-term solutions are what the people of Flint need and what I am focused on delivering for them."
