Vice President Mike Pence brings his tour to tout his boss’ accomplishments to Cleveland on Friday, where he’ll deliver a speech at the InterContinental Hotel as part of a series called “Tax Cuts to Put America First.”
In recent days, he’s made similar appearances in Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan and Texas.
Before Pence arrives at the Cleveland event, hosted by America First Policies, a nonprofit group that promotes President Donald Trump’s policies, Republican Congress members Jim Renacci of Wadsworth and Bob Gibbs of Holmes County will engage in a panel discussion with the host organization’s Curtis Ellis “to discuss the impact the President’s tax cuts are having in Cleveland and in the state of Ohio,” a White House official said.
GOP Congress member Jim Jordan of Champaign County is scheduled to introduce Pence’s speech.
Renacci is running for U.S. Senate this year, and Gibbs and Jordan are running for re-election.
The event at the hotel is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m., and Pence’s plane is supposed to arrive at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at 4 p.m. His speech is supposed to start at 4:40 p.m.
Afterward, Pence will participate in a political event hosted by Columbus-area GOP Congressman Steve Stivers at a different Cleveland venue before heading back to Washington at around 8 p.m.
