A day before Donald Trump stops in La Crosse County, Vice President Mike Pence will be campaigning in Minnesota, after all, on Monday, after a text message from the Trump-Pence campaign indicated the two would be together in Allentown, Penn.
The vice president’s communications director, Katie Miller, states that Pence “as scheduled will be campaigning in Minnesota.” Miller provided the clarification after the campaign’s text message asked supporters to RSVP to see both Trump and Pence.
After Trump’s Allentown stop, he will be in Lititz, Penn., and Martinsburg, Penn. on Monday. Tuesday, Trump stops for a 1 p.m. rally in Lansing, Mich., before his 4 p.m. event in West Salem.
Pence will be at the Range Regional Airport in Hibbing, Minn. to deliver remarks at 1 p.m. Monday with other Republican candidates, according to a news release from the President Donald Trump and Pence campaign.
A note at the bottom of each registration page reads: “In attending the event, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; The Republican National Committee, the host venue; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any illness or injury.”
Pence, who leads the White House coronavirus task force, is continuing with a slate of campaign events despite positive tests from several aides to the vice president.
Joe Biden, too, plans to pick up his travel schedule, aiming to hit the six battleground states the campaign sees as key to his chances, some with socially distanced in-person events and others with virtual events.
Tuesday, the former vice president is traveling to Georgia, a state that hasn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in more than a quarter-century but where polls show a tight race.
