Correction: Pence-Ohio story

July 29, 2019

LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) — In a story July 26 about Vice President Mike Pence’s planned July 30 visit to southeast Ohio, The Associated Press erroneously reported a company’s name. It is Magna International, not Magnum International.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Vice President Pence to visit Ohio next Tuesday

Vice President Mike Pence is expected to visit southeast Ohio for the groundbreaking ceremony of an auto supplier plant.

LANCASTER, Ohio (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence is expected to visit southeast Ohio next week for the groundbreaking ceremony of an automotive supplier’s plant.

Fairfield County Republican Party chairman Jeff Fix tells the Lancaster Eagle Gazette that Tuesday’s event at the Magna International plant site will be by invitation. The company is expected to initially employ 300 workers in Lancaster, some 30 miles (48.28 kilometers) southeast of Columbus.

Republican President Donald Trump’s campaign announced earlier that Pence will join the president in an Aug. 1 rally in downtown Cincinnati, the day after the second round of Democratic presidential debates ends.

That Thursday evening rally will be at U.S. Bank Arena. Trump also led a rally there after his November 2016 election victory, in which he handily carried the battleground state of Ohio over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
