Vice President Mike Pence speaks Friday, March 1, 2019, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.

Vice President Mike Pence will be in Michigan Wednesday, when he plans to visit Grand Rapids, Holland and Portage.

Pence “will meet with faith and community leaders,” according to a news release, and will attend a “Keep America Great” event with former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at 5 p.m. at 215 Central Ave. in Holland. Doors open at 3 p.m.

The event is free to attend, but participants must RSVP on President Donald Trump’s website.

Two tickets are allowed per person, served on a first-come, first-served basis.

“RSVP NOW to join Sarah Huckabee Sanders and me in Michigan next week as we fight to #KeepAmericaGreat! America and Michigan need Four More Years of President Donald J. Trump in the White House!,” Pence posted on Facebook.

The vice president might speak about Trump’s presidency, according to a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox, who told the Detroit News “the path to victory in 2020 runs through Michigan.”

“The Michigan Republican Party fights day in and day out to keep Michigan red in 2020, and secure four more prosperous years under the Trump administration,” Cox told the newspaper.

Michigan is one of about four swing states that could decide the 2020 election, according to some analysts. Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Florida are the others.

The Associated Press previously reported Sanders could be preparing to run for governor of Arkansas, a position her father Mike Huckabee previously held.
