MADISON – Vice President Mike Pence will swing through Wisconsin on Friday to promote a trade deal and denounce socialism.
Pence’s first stop will be in Ripon, which bills itself as the birthplace of the Republican Party. At Ripon College, Pence plans to “deliver remarks on the Trump administration’s ongoing commitment to a pro-growth agenda and the rejection of socialist policies,” according to President Donald Trump’s campaign.
From there, Pence will head to Onalaska to tour a dairy farm and talk up the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement that replaced the North America Free Trade Agreement.
The visit comes four months after Pence and his wife, Karen, scuttled a “Women for Trump” event that was to be held in Onalaska. That event was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Pence last visited Wisconsin in June, when he promoted voucher schools in Waukesha County.
The Ripon talk is at 11:30 a.m. and the Onalaska farm tour is at 3:15 p.m.
