Former Vice President Pence campaigns on behalf of Valadao | New

The former vice president campaigned on behalf of Republican Congressman David Valadao in Fresno on Monday.

Valadao, who currently represents District 21, is in a hotly contested race with Democratic State Assemblyman Rudy Salas to represent District 22, which includes Porterville, in the House of Representatives in the Nov. 8 election. . The race could go a long way to determine whether Republicans regain control of the House and are considered a draw.

Pence spoke to reporters, saying the race is key for Republicans to regain control of the House. He also said Valadao’s retention in Congress was important because he served on the House Appropriations Committee. He also said Valadao was a strong ally of the Trum-Pence administration when he served in Congress during that administration’s first two years in office.

Valadao also spoke and he and Pence talked about high gas prices in California, rising housing costs in the Central Valley and Valadao also talked about the district’s water needs.

Valadao was one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach President Donald Trump after the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The Hanford dairy farmer was one of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump in the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol. Valadao is just one of two of 10 House Republicans to vote to impeach Trump who ran in the Nov. 8 election.

Asked about Valadao’s vote to impeach Trump, Pence dodged the question. While Pence called January 6, 2021 a tragic day, he said that was in the past and elections should be able to focus on the future, not the past.

Valadao said he doesn’t believe his impeachment vote is a major issue in the race and it appears to be because little has been said about Valadao’s vote in the campaign.

Pence also downplayed Valadao’s vote, adding that the Trump-Pence administration has no better ally than Valadao.
