VP Mike Pence speaks from Lunken Airport in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Lunken Airport in Cincinnati Wednesday.

The event was open to the public. Temperature checks were performed, and attendees had to waive liability for risk of COVID-19 exposure.

Reports from the event indicate several hundred in attendance, low mask compliance and a lack of social distancing.

“I think the choice in this election is whether America remains America,” Pence told the crowd.

He went on to make a list of promises to voters should he and President Donald Trump be reelected.

“We’ll uphold religious liberty, freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms,” Pence said. “We’re going to hire more police. We’re going to ban sanctuary cities and we’re going to stop the indoctrination of our kids and restore patriotic education to our schools.”

Vice President Pence’s stop in Cincinnati came only a few days after White House advisor and first daughter Ivanka Trump was in town, seeming to confirm Ohio poll data that shows the state President Donald Trump won by eight points in 2016 is in play in 2020.

Election Day is now less than two weeks away.
