Vice President Mike Pence to visit Tallahassee on Saturday
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Vice President Mike Pence will make a stop along the campaign trail in Tallahassee on Saturday, Oct. 24, according to a tweet from his communications director.
Vice Presidential Communications Director Katie Miller tweeted Pence’s schedule for the week Monday morning.
Before coming to Tallahassee on Saturday, Pence will visit Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Ohio, Michigan and Indiana.
Pence will also visit Jacksonville on Saturday, Miller’s tweet says.
Details for the campaign event have not been confirmed yet. Back in 2016, President Donald Trump spoke at the Tallahassee Automobile Museum. Thousands of people showed up for that event, which was held outdoors.
WCTV reached out to the museum Monday, but have yet to hear back; however, several sources say it wouldn’t be the optimal choice for Pence.
Sources pointed to a recent White House trend of hosting events on the tarmac at airports.
The Tallahassee International Airport says if Pence were to arrive there, he would not use the passenger terminal.
The announcement of the campaign event came on the first day of early voting in Florida. The Trump Bus made the rounds across North Florida Monday, making its final stop in Tallahassee. The bus also stopped in Suwannee and Madison counties, among others.
The chairman of the Leon County Republican Party says it is voters in North Florida and the Panhandle that push the candidates over the top to victory in the Sunshine State.
This is a developing story. WCTV is working to confirm details of the vice president’s visit to the capital city.
