The trip to Atlanta and Birmingham includes an appearance in support of Republican Brian Kemp’s bid for Georgia governor.
The White House says Pence will visit the Delta Airlines’ TechOps facility in Atlanta on Thursday to meet with employees and deliver remarks.
Pence will then attend two political events, including a Georgia GOP fundraiser. Pence had been scheduled to come to Georgia last month but the event was cancelled because of Hurricane Florence.
Pence headlined a rally for Kemp in July ahead of the Republican primary runoff. Kemp faces Democrat Stacey Abrams in next month’s general election
Pence will then travel to Birmingham for a National Republican Senatorial Committee fundraiser.
