MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence plans to join an executive from Foxconn Technology Group, Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman at a public forum in Milwaukee to talk about the Republican tax overhaul.
The event on Wednesday, sponsored by a group created to promote President Donald Trump’s policies, was also to include Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, a business advocacy group.
Following the forum, Pence is to be the main attraction at an evening fundraiser for Walker.
Pence has been traveling the country for similar events to promote the tax changes. The Milwaukee event is organized by America First Policies and the forum will be overseen by Corey Lewandowski, a senior adviser to the group and former campaign manager for Trump.
