Vice President Mike Pence is traveling to Wisconsin Tuesday to highlight the production of ventilators during the coronavirus pandemic.

His office said Pence will travel to Madison, Wisconsin, to visit a GE Healthcare manufacturing facility. Pence will tour the facility and talk to GE Healthcare employees.

Wisconsin is a battleground state in this year’s presidential election after President Donald Trump narrowly won the state in 2016. This month a liberal challenger defeated a conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court justice endorsed by Trump. Republicans had successfully pushed to hold the April election even as other states postponed theirs due to the coronavirus pandemic.
