PHOENIX - Vice President Mike Pence landed in Phoenix around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, prepared to talk tax reform with Arizona leaders.

From Sky Harbor, Pence -- along with Gov. Doug Ducey -- will meet with local businesses, community leaders and families to discuss tax reform.

The release says Pence was also scheduled to participate in a fundraiser Tuesday evening. He's expected to depart Wednesday morning.

The last time Pence was in Arizona was August, when he and President Donald Trump both came to Phoenix for a rally that spurred protests.
