Vice President Mike Pence plans to make a campaign stop Tuesday at a manufacturing company in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha.

The Trump campaign says Pence will speak at Weldall Manufacturing, which does large-scale fabrication work. While President Donald Trump remains sidelined as he recovers from COVID-19, Pence will be visiting one of the nation’s top states in new coronavirus cases per capita.
