As the general election continues to heat up with a record number of early voters and vote-by-mail ballots due to the pandemic, Vice President Mike Pence plans to visit Tallahassee this Saturday, Oct. 24 to hold a Make America Great Again rally. The rally will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Tallahassee International Airport.
Vice Presidential Communications Director Katie Miller announced Monday on Twitter that Pence would be visiting several states within the week and that he would be in both Tallahassee and Jacksonville this Saturday following President Trump’s three separate visits to the state this month. It was later updated that the Vice President would actually be in Lakeland instead of Jacksonville.
Those who attend will have to register, which comes with a disclaimer indicating that they understand and acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place.
Also, officials will check everyone’s temperature and attendees will be provided masks and instructed to wear them.
Trump’s 2016 visit to Tallahassee attracted thousands of people to the Tallahassee Automobile Museum, an event that caused an overwhelming amount of traffic around U.S. 90 and the I-10 interchange.
