Vice President Mike Pence will be in Warrensville Heights on Wednesday, discussing the President's economic agenda and the administration's plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. 

He will be meeting with business leaders, including small business owners and various job creators in the community. 

Pence will arrive in Cleveland on Air Force Two, landing at Burke Lakefront Airport around 3:05 p.m. He will then travel to Tendon Manufacturing Inc., where he will meet with business leaders and deliver formal remarks. 

Although he has traveled to Ohio various times this year, this will mark Pence's first event in Northeast Ohio as Vice President. 

A group of residents is planning a protest in response to the visit. The 'Healthcare De-Pence on You' protest is scheduled to take place outside of Tendon Manufacturing. Attendees plan to speak out against the Republican health care repeal bill.
