Tickets are now on sale for the big Donald Trump event that has received significant attention since WMP broke news of Trump's Michigan visit last week. Trump will be in Birch Run on August 11 for a fundraiser co-hosted by the Genesee GOP and the Saginaw GOP. Tickets are $25 and judging by the interest, one would do well to buy tickets ASAP to make sure they don't sell out.

Also noteworthy: Trump picked up the endorsement of former MI House Speaker Rick Johnson. Johnson compared Trump's business experience to that of Gov. Snyder's and told Tim Skubick:
“I think it’s time to put a businessman in the White House. We did that here in Michigan and it kind of worked,” said Johnson. “That’s what’s nice about Donald Trump is the fact that he does speak his mind. He does say what he’s thinking and that’s what we need.”
