Vice President Mike Pence in Saginaw, Dec. 18, 2019 | Andrew Roth

Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to campaign again in Michigan a couple weeks before the state’s March 10 presidential primary.

Pence will speak at the Michigan Farm Bureau Lansing Legislative Seminar and then hold a campaign event at 5 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Detroit Marriott in Troy.

Pence was last in Michigan in December, embarking on a bus tour of Frankenmuth and Saginaw, before joining President Trump at a rally in Battle Creek. During that event, the U.S. House voted to impeach the president.
