Posted at 3:13 AM, Aug 14, 2018

CINCINNATI -- Vice President Mike Pence will be in Cincinnati today to promote Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine in his race for governor and to deliver remarks at a "Tax Cuts to Put America First" event.

Pence is scheduled to arrive at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport around noon.

After his arrival, he will be at a Mike DeWine for Governor event to promote DeWine in his race against Richard Cordray.

President Donald Trump has been supportive of DeWine in his race for governor and endorsed DeWine via Twitter in May writing:

From there, Pence will go to the Westin Hotel in downtown Cincinnati for a "Tax Cuts to Put America First" event, where he will be delivering the keynote remarks.

The event is part of a series being put on by the nonprofit America First Policies to discuss the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which was signed into law in December, 2017.

"We cut taxes for working families," Pence said at a "Tax Cuts to Put America First" event in Columbus, Ohio. "Under our plan, the typical family of four here in Ohio is going to save more than $2,200 a year on their taxes."

Pence is then expected to fly out of CVG Tuesday afternoon and head to Perrysburg, Ohio to take part in a Jim Renacci for Senate event.
