Pence to visit Cleveland area to hear from business owners

CLEVELAND (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to visit suburban Cleveland on Wednesday to meet with small business owners.

The White House says Pence will hear from business owners and their employees at Tendon Manufacturing Inc. The vice president also is expected to make formal remarks at the metal fabrication company.

The White House says Pence will discuss President Donald Trump's economic agenda and the administration's priorities for repealing and replacing former President Barack Obama's health care law.

Senate Republican leaders on Tuesday delayed any voting on their health care overhaul, until after the Fourth of July recess. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that allows GOP leadership time to work to get enough votes.
