VP Mike Pence set to campaign for Karen Handel

Vice President Mike Pence is set to join Karen Handel on the campaign trail in June, according to new reports. 

Handel has made it known that she expected the Vice President to travel to the District ahead of the June 20 runoff. 

Last week, House Speaker Paul Ryan stumped for the former Secretary of State at a rally, while Trump hosted a fundraiser in her honor during the week of the NRA convention. The event was said to have raised $750,000 for Handel's campaign. 

With one month to go until the election between Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff, polls are indicating that Ossoff is pulling ahead. The news could create an even larger rallying effect among ,major GOP leaders, as others like Marco Rubio are said to be planning future visits to help Handel win.
