Vice President Mike Pence will be back in Florida to campaign next week.

With Florida a crucial state in the 2020 presidential election, Pence will bring his “Faith in America” tour to an 11:30 a.m. July 2 appearance at the Sarasota Event Center, according to an announcement Thursday by President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Tickets are being distributed online on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of two tickets per mobile number. The organization America First Policies, which supports Trump, also announced that Pence is slated to appear at 2:30 p.m. July 2 at Oakley Transport, Inc., in Lake Wales.

Pence made trips to Florida in May, including joining Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis to watch the SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft launch on May 30 at Cape Canaveral.
