Pence campaigns for Trump in Flint, gets key Democrat’s vote

Flint — Vice President Mike Pence welcomed a Michigan rally for the second time in less than a week on Wednesday and a vote for President Trump by a Flint council members six days out from Tuesday’s election. 

Maurice Davis, vice president for the Flint City Council, spoke ahead of Pence’s rally. The self-described lifelong Democrat announced earlier this month that he was voting for Trump on Tuesday.

Pence thanked Davis for committing his vote to Trump. “I’m  partial to vice presidents,” he said.

“We need you to show them that Michigan is Trump country,” he said. “…Four years ago here in Michigan, you believed we could be strong again. You believed we could be prosperous again.”

The crowd started chanting, “Four more years” a short way into the address.

“When Mr. Trump say ‘what the hell you go to lose,’ he was talking to me,” said Davis, who has advocated for limits on Flint liquor stores to decrease violence in Flint and criticized continuing fallout from the Flint water crisis.
