Vice presidential nominee Mike Pence recently took the GOP’s campaign to a gravel industrial lot in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to talk about his and running mate Donald Trump’s vision for the country. As he discussed his party’s goals for the country’s economy, Pence warned his listeners about what the Democrats are trying to do for the upcoming election.
On Thursday, Pence took a trip to Cambria County to visit the armor-manufacturing company JWF Industries. While standing on a makeshift stage in front of the company’s staff members, the vice presidential hopeful delivered his message about the GOP’s support for the country’s manufacturing industry.
In his speech, Pence reiterated that uplifting the country’s industrial companies and their employees is one of the backbones of a thriving economy. While doing so, the Republican candidate and Governor of Indiana warned the people that the Democrats, particularly Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, are distracting the country from the issues that matter through the use of flowery ideas.
“People of both political parties are longing for change,” Pence said during the rally according to the Post Gazette. “The country is heading in the wrong direction… All the happy talk about the economy you hear from the other side. It’s breathtaking. They tell us things are better, they like to roll out statistics.”
>“I don’t know about you here in Pennsylvania, but over in Indiana, we feel a little bit different,” he continued.
>“Whatever progress we’ve made in the Hoosier State is in spite of Washington D.C., not because of it.”
According to Pence, if elected president, Trump would ensure that the states which used to be the prime locations of the country’s manufacturing industry will thrive once again under his administration. By doing so, these companies will be able to generate more jobs for the people while boosting the country’s economic growth.
As for Pence, he just came from a successful debate against his rival Kaine on Oct. 4 at the Longwood University in Virginia. During the event, he was able to maintain his calm demeanor while clearly explaining details of Trump’s platform. Kaine, on the other hand, mainly relied on criticisms and allegations to try to keep Pence from focusing on topics that really matter.
