ORLANDO, Fla. – Less than a week after he was elected U.S. vice president, Mike Pence is back in Orlando, but not on a campaign bus.

Pence is scheduled to speak Monday night as a special guest at the Republican Governors Association meeting at the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club.

Before becoming vice president-elect, Pence served as governor of Indiana beginning in 2013. Eric Holocomb was elected Nov. 8 to replace Pence as governor.

The meeting is a yearly gathering of U.S. Republican governors and governors-elect to discuss policy priorities, success and future opportunities, according to a Republican Governors Association news release.

Pence will speak at 7 p.m. during the welcome reception, along with Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

“Republican Governors Leading the Change” and “Behind the Rhetoric – America’s Job Creators” are among the panel discussions on the agenda.

Pence and Scott are among 15 governors speaking on panels during the two-day meeting.
