Vice President Mike Pence is kicking off a 26 city tour of battleground states in Jacksonville on Monday, May 20.

The event is aimed at building public support for a new trade deal.

Pence will be joined by panelists to discuss President Trump’s new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

The agreement, which is a renegotiation of NAFTA, was signed last November.

Pence has visited Jacksonville before — most recently for a fundraiser in March. He was also in town in October to rally for then-gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, who went on to win the race for governor.
