Michigan Democrats plan to protest New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's planned fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land.
The state Democratic Party is organizing Wednesday's morning protest outside a country club in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills.
Christie is raising money as chairman of the Republican Governors Association and also is expected to attend a Wednesday fundraiser for Gov. Rick Snyder.
Democrats criticize Michigan Republicans for appearing with Christie because he's facing multiple investigations in a political retribution probe.
Land's campaign says Democrats are hypocritical.
It says Democrats didn't call for cancellation of Vice President Joe Biden's fundraiser for Democratic Senate candidate Gary Peters despite the botched Fast and Furious gun-smuggling investigation brought to light after a federal agent from Michigan was killed near the Arizona-Mexico border.
