Updated VP Fla. Schedule: Pence To Campaign Saturday In Lakeland, Tallahassee

Oct 23, 2020

Vice President Mike Pence will campaign Saturday in Lakeland and Tallahassee, a day after President Donald Trump also rallies voters in the state. 

Pence is slated to appear at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Lakeland International Airport and then will hold a rally at 6:30 p.m. at Tallahassee International Airport, the Trump campaign announced Thursday.

Earlier this week, the campaign tweeted that Pence would also be stopping in Jacksonville Saturday, but Jacksonville is no longer on the list of cities for the vice president’s Saturday schedule.

The appearances come as Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden focus heavily on winning Florida’s 29 electoral votes.

Trump will hold rallies Friday in The Villages and Pensacola. Also, former President Barack Obama is slated to campaign Saturday for Biden in Miami.
