Approximately 300 people attended the 6 p.m. event at Lunken Airport.
The event was open to the public, but tickets were required. All attendees were given a temperature check, masks and access to hand sanitizer. Attendees also had to waive liability for risk of COVID-19 exposure.
Pence, who has visited Ohio numerous times this year, touted the successes of the Trump Administration including the rebuilding of the military and growing the economy.
“Ohio and America need four more years of President Donald Trump in the White House,” Pence said. “And the road to victory runs right through Ohio.”
Pence also praised the leadership of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
“I want to express my appreciation for the strong, steady, compassionate leadership of Governor Mike DeWine,” said Pence.
Pence said that while the Trump Administration is still working to “distribute a vaccine defeat the China virus,” he applauded the steps that were taken to protect citizens during the pandemic.
He also continued to say that they will continue to rebuild the nation and reopen Ohio.
Following Pence’s rally, the Biden campaign released the following statement on the Vice President’s visit to Ohio:
“Ohio working families are bearing the brunt of President Trump and Vice President Pence’s failures. Hundreds of thousands are out of work, more than 170,000 Ohioans have been infected by COVID-19, more than one in five small businesses have shuttered, and there’s no end in sight. The sad truth is it didn’t have to be this bad. Instead of uniting our country under a clear plan to get the virus under control, this administration has peddled lies and waved a white flag. Instead of making good on his promises to Ohio’s working families, President Trump turned his back on thousands of workers in Lordstown and called for a boycott of Goodyear.
“The Buckeye State deserves better. Unlike President Trump, Joe Biden has always put the interests of workers and families first. As President, he won’t just talk about delivering for Ohioans, he’ll actually do it — by working to create millions of good-paying jobs, lowering health care costs, and helping us build back better than before.”
