Florida Politics reports:
Vice President Mike Pence indefinitely postponed a rally planned Thursday in Sarasota. The Republican Party of Sarasota announced Saturday that the stop, part of Pence’s “Faith In America” tour, was off for now.
“Stay tuned for updates on the new time for Vice President’s visit,” an email blasts reads. The news came the same day Florida reported another 9,585 cases of coronavirus.
Pence’s stop was a political one, a chance to rally religious conservatives in a battleground state. Sarasota served as home to President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign for most of the 2016 campaign cycle.
