DALTON, Ga. - Republican Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence addressed a rally in Dalton Tuesday. It was the second day of campaigning in the state by Donald Trump's running mate.
His visit underscores the importance of Georgia to the GOP ticket. The state has been reliably Republican for more than 30 years, giving its Electoral College votes to only one Democrat since 1984. This year, some polls suggest that Georgia appears to be a toss-up.
The Indiana governor spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center. He criticized Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in much the same way he did during Monday's speeches in Perry and in Cobb County.
Pence is continuing his tour of southern battleground states. He was scheduled to appear in North Carolina late Tuesday and in Florida on Wednesday.
