TEMPE (AP) – Vice President Mike Pence will be in Arizona on Tuesday to tout the Republican tax overhaul approved by Congress and signed into law by President Donald Trump.

Pence will appear at an afternoon event in Tempe hosted by America First Policies, a pro-Trump nonprofit. He's traveling across the U.S. to highlight the tax overhaul.

Pence is also scheduled to appear at an evening fundraiser for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a party group that works to elect Republican candidates for U.S. Senate.

Arizona has an open Senate seat with first-term Republican incumbent Jeff Flake's decision to not seek re-election.
