Former Vice President Mike Pence attends the GOP convention in Columbus with Donald Trump and other candidates

COLUMBUS, Georgia (WRBL) — The Georgia state GOP convention next month in Columbus has attracted a fourth major figure from the national party.

Former Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to address the convention on Friday night, June 9, at the Convention & Trade Center, according to an email sent to delegates by state party leader David Shafer on Thursday afternoon.

Three announced Republican presidential candidates — former President Donald Trump, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy — are committed to Congress.

Pence has not announced his candidacy for president, but is exploring the possibility.

Ramaswamy is scheduled to speak on Friday afternoon, Hutchinson on Saturday morning and Trump on Saturday afternoon before Congress ends.

The convention will take place on June 9th and 10th in downtown Columbus.

As Georgia’s annual GOP convention draws national attention, some of the state’s top Republicans sit out. Governor Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Attorney General Chris Carr have said they will not be in Columbus for Congress.
