Pence traveling to Indiana for private event with governor

Vice President Mike Pence is planning a trip to Indianapolis for a private campaign event for Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb.

The vice president’s office announced Wednesday that Pence will fly Friday afternoon into Indianapolis International Airport and take part in what it calls a roundtable for Holcomb, who is seeking reelection next year. Pence is scheduled to return to Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

A Holcomb campaign spokeswoman says Pence and the governor are taking part in a private event in Indianapolis that isn’t open to the news media.

Holcomb was Pence’s lieutenant governor when Donald Trump picked Pence as his 2016 running mate. Pence then endorsed Holcomb to take his place as the Republican candidate for governor.

Holcomb already set a state fundraising record with $6 million in his campaign account at the end of June toward his 2020 reelection bid.

Three Democrats—state Sen. Eddie Melton of Gary, former state health commissioner Woody Myers and tech business executive Josh Owens—are seeking the Democratic nomination for governor.
