Mike Pence arrived in Mansfield Wednesday morning for a "Get out and vote" rally.

Air Force 2 landed at Mansfield Lahm Regional Airport at approximately 10:40 a.m. 

The vice president was joined by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Rep. Troy Balderson.

With the mid-term elections less than a week away, Republicans are looking to keep a majority in the House and Senate. 

In August, Balderson narrowly won the 12th district seat in a special election, a seat left vacant by Republican Pat Tiberi.

During his visit, Pence touched on the unemployment rate, which the administration is touting as one of its successes. He also focused heavily on immigration, telling the crowd that leaders at the national and state level are determined to end illegal immigration.

In Ohio, early voting is up by 55 percent from four years ago, and more than eight million Ohioans are registered to vote.
