Four thousand major manufacturing jobs could be coming to Michigan. The prospects of landing a new Toyota engine plant appear to be improving.

The head of the MEDC says there is reason to be "excited" that Michigan may beat Tennessee and Kentucky in the plant sweepstakes. Adding his voice to the upbeat speculation is the former MEDC director David Hollister who tells News 10 tonight "there's a high potential" of the Japanese car maker picking this state. Hollister says the chances were once 50-50 but not they "fluctuate between 60 and 70 percent."

No indication from Toyota on when they will announce the plant location.
