Former Vice President Mike Pence Travels to Tennessee to Meet with Governor Bill Lee and House Speaker Cameron Sexton


Former Vice President of the United States Mike Pence traveled on Wednesday to Tennessee to meet with Governor Bill Lee and Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton. During the former vice president’s visit, he complimented the state for having a “fiscally conservative approach” and its commitment to automotive manufacturing, according to House Speaker Sexton.

Tennessee Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton tweeted, “Great honor meeting former Vice President @Mike_Pence during his visit with @GovBillLee today. He complimented Tennessee on its fiscally conservative approach and for being an automotive manufacturing leader like his home state of Indiana.”

As Sexton mentioned Tennessee being an “automotive manufacturing leader”, the state recently was chosen for a new Ford Motor Company electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facility. The automobile manufacturer will invest a total of $5.6 billion in the area, as the group builds a 3,600-acre campus called Blue Oval City.

The former vice president also shared his visit on Twitter, writing, “Wonderful day in the great state of Tennessee with @GovBillLee! Bill is leading the people of the Volunteer State with strong Conservative principles that put Tennesseans FIRST! “

Pence and his wife, Karen, also visited the Volunteer State to attend and speak at the Celebrators Conference in Pigeon Forge. The conference started Monday and ran until Thursday morning.

“Celebrators is a time for biblical teaching, gospel music and a celebration of our country and its veterans. We are so excited to have our former vice president and his wife with us to honor those men and women who have served,” said conference founder, Phil Waldrep.

Celebrators began in 1994 and past speakers include former President George W. Bush, Mike Huckabee, Tim Tebow and Charlie Daniels.

    So self “unaware”! Does Mike Pence really believe ANYONE would vote for him after the betrayal he pulled?! Just goes to show that there is not a single politician that can be trusted!

    I have no opinion of Pence. But I have very strong negative thoughts concerning Lee. He has been a disaster. At least Sexton had called for a special session to deal with Lee’s outlandish emergency orders. More than I can say for my senator. And my rep has been hiding from it as well.

    While I respect Mike Pence, thank goodness, I don’t ever have to like him nor vote for him again! He could have saved America from the most ignorant regime in our history! As for Gov Bill Lee, I”d say, don’t cozy up to Pence to much or more of his RINO flakes may rub off on you!

    What Pence should be doing is taking Mr. Lee out behind the woodshed and whoop some good ol’ Conservative values into this so-called Governor.

      Pence can’t impose any Conservative values, because he’s a RINO & opportunist. Send Pence back to the home for retired swamprats.

    Et tu Brutus? Did ya’ll see the picture of these and other conspirators having a “swamp” meeting/dinner at the TN Governor’s Mansion? A pretty interesting group of bedfellows! And all paid for by us Tennessean citizens, who are being forced to take vaccines we don’t want, or lose our jobs for not taking the vaccine. The same Tennessee citizens who are also being forced to accept and pay for countless illegal aliens from God-know where, thanks in part to the people in these photos! The swamp in action!

    Nice of you to stop by, but you’re no hero Mr. Pence.
