GREENSBORO – Vice President of the United States Mike Pence is making multiple stops in the Old North State Wednesday in what seems like a kickoff to 2020. North Carolina is set to be a vitally important swing state for President Donald Trump’s reelection bid and so this is likely the first of many appearances Pence, Trump surrogates, and the president himself will make in the next year and a half.
“Pence is set to arrive in Charlotte on Air force Two Wednesday morning to go to the 2020 Republican National Convention Kickoff in Charlotte.
That afternoon, the vice president will head to Parkdale Mills, the self-described “world leader in yarn manufacturing,” in Monroe. Pence plans to tour the facility and talk to employees, promoting the benefits of the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement for the Tar Heel state.
After [a] short flight to Greensboro Wednesday evening, Pence will go to a “Trump Victory” event in the Gate City.”
Reports are that Pence may actually be helping to raise funds for Sen. Thom Tillis while in Greensboro as he faces a stiff primary challenge from Garland Tucker. Tucker just recently released an ad attacking Tillis for his swampy ways last week.
