While in Ohio, Pence will also host a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine, according to a Cincinnati Enquirer report. DeWine faces Democrat Richard Cordray for the state’s top job in November.

Pence was in Columbus at a similar America First Policies’ event in June. Last month, the vice president campaigned in Newark for Republican Troy Balderson ahead of a 12th Congressional District special election between Balderson and Danny O’Connor that — without a complete count of provisional ballots — remains too close to have an official winner. Either way, the race will be re-fought in November.
