President Barack Obama has arrived in Michigan the night before a planned speech at the University of Michigan that's expected to deal with college affordability.
Air Force One landed at 8:12 p.m. Thursday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus after a flight from Colorado. Obama stepped into a light, cold rain before leaving in a motorcade.
He's on a five-state trip following his State of the Union address Tuesday night.
Last month, University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman wrote an open letter to Obama describing the affordability of higher education as "a thorny issue that demands a national conversation."
In the State of the State address, Obama proposed to keep college affordable by yanking federal aid from colleges that don't keep tuition down and provide good value.
