Vice President Mike Pence visited the Youngstown, OH, area June 25 to attend the unveiling of Lordstown Motors’ new Endurance electric pickup truck.

Pence, now on the campaign trail with November quickly approaching, delivered remarks, and afterward, met with law enforcement and community leaders.

 

Pence announced that approximately 14,000 preorders for the Endurance truck have already been made.

 

The closing of the longstanding GM plant, and its 1,400-plus layoffs, drew ire from both sides of the aisle with President Donald Trump and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) each criticizing the closure and calling for new jobs in the small Ohio auto town.

 

The unveiling began at noon, and also included a speech from Cleveland businessman and Lordstown Motors CEO Steve Burns.

 

U.S. Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette and other government officials were also in attendance.

 

Gov. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted toured the plant June 24.

 

Businesses in Westlake and Cleveland have pledged to buy more than 1,200 Endurance trucks, which cost $52,000 apiece.
