Vice President Mike Pence will be in Cincinnati today promoting Trump administration tax cuts and trying to bolster the Republican candidate for Ohio governor.
America First Policies, a group that promotes President Donald Trump’s policies, is sponsoring Pence tax event downtown at the Westin Cincinnati.
You can listen to some of Pence’s address live on AM1290 and News 95.7 WHIO starting at around 1:45 p.m. It’s possible the vice president starts slightly after that.

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.
Last week, Pence announced the administration’s plans for the country to create a new, separate military service, the U.S. Space Force, by 2020.
