Mike Pence, running mate of GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, is planning a campaign stop in Loudoun County on Saturday.
Will Estrada, chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, confirmed today that the vice presidential candidate plans to hold a campaign event at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville.
“The Trump campaign is finalizing arrangements for Mike Pence to come to Loudoun County on Saturday for a rally at Patrick Henry College,” he said.
More details will be announced in the coming days.
Loudoun County is considered a political bellwether in the race for the White House. Several candidates eyeing the nation’s top spot have already made stops here, hoping to woo local voters.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton visited with voters at a Stone Ridge coffee house in May, and Trump stumped at Briar Woods High School in Ashburn earlier this month. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio also held a campaign event at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville in February, when he was still in the running for the GOP nomination.
