Vice President Mike Pence will be in Florida on Saturday to host two campaign events for President Donald Trump in the Orlando area.
The visit is part of Trump’s campaign “Operation MAGA,” an effort to keep the GOP presidential bid afloat while the President is treated for COVID-19. The mission includes Trump’s top surrogates, such as Pence and Donald Trump Jr., continuing to host in-person campaign appearances just days after a potential super-spreader event at the White House led to several positive COVID-19 tests among top officials.
Pence will kick off the day by hosting a ‘Latinos for Trump’ event in Orlando at 1 p.m. Saturday at Central Christian University. This will be followed by ‘Make America Great Again!’ event with the Vice President at The Villages at 3:30 p.m.
The stops show the efforts from the President’s reelection campaign to reach the state’s Hispanic voters, as well as older voters, two populations vital for a Florida win.
In a recent, post-debate poll from The New York Times and Sienna College, Democratic nominee Joe Biden led a 47% to 42% margin among likely Florida voters.
Biden maintains a 5-point lead against Trump in the Sunshine State, according
