Michigan U.S. Senator Gary Peters was in Northern Michigan Friday morning meeting with farmers from across the area.

The senator made the visit to Traverse City to discuss trade policies and the impact they’re having on our area.

The senator discussed what’s next after the U.S. International Trade Commission’s decision to issue tariffs against Turkey.
