President Donald Trump will be visiting Indianapolis on Wednesday to promote the Republican-led federal tax overhaul effort.

Vice President Mike Pence made the announcement as he started a speech Friday afternoon in Anderson, but didn't provide more details.

The visits by Trump and Pence come as they try to persuade Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat, to support a GOP-led tax overhaul effort.

Pence spoke directly to Donnelly while the senator was at his speech Friday in Anderson. After outlining the proposal's principles of lowering tax rates and eliminating tax breaks, Pence said "Senator Donnelly, we need your help, too."

Donnelly had dinner with Trump and several Republicans and Democrats at the White House last week, but has been coy thus far about whether he will support the GOP effort.

Donnelly is one of three vulnerable Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2018 who represent states Trump won in November.
