Vice President Mike Pence is set to campaign in Ohio and support a candidate Friday ahead of August’s special election race, according to a Monday report.
Pence will reportedly host a fundraiser for Republican state Sen. Troy Balderson, who is running against Democratic candidate Danny O’Connor in the Aug. 7 special election, according to Politico. The seat was held by former Ohio Republican Rep. Pat Tiberi, who announced in October that he would be leaving congress by Jan. 31. Tiberi backed Balderson and even helped pay for television ad’s from his own campaign account in support of the state senator.
