Eugene Scalia is an American politician and attorney who has served as the 28th United States Secretary of Labor since September 30, 2019.

Vice President Pence Visits Michigan for "The Great American Comeback Tour." Reopening America. 

Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia will be traveling to Michigan with VP Pence who plans to visit several Michigan businesses Thursday and deliver remarks at a steel manufacturer in Sterling Heights. He is focused on the economic recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic and is part of the group’s “Great American Comeback Tour.”

"The Great American Comeback Tour” features guest speakers discussing policies that will drive America’s economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will feature a round table discussing policies that will drive economic recovery and conclude with special guest Vice President Mike Pence.

Vice President Mike Pence is courting an area in metro Detroit today traditionally known as the home of the Reagan Democrats  -- fiscal conservatives who swing their votes between Democratic and Republican candidates.

Pence will be making a number of stops in Macomb County as part of what he's calling the Great American Comeback Tour.

The first visit will be lunch at Engine House in Mt. Clemens, a restaurant owned by local firefighters.

After that will be a stop at Chardam Gear Company in Sterling Heights, which makes parts for the aerospace and defense industries. He'll wrap up with a speech at Casadei Structural Steel, one of the largest steel fabricators in the state.

And he arrives in Michigan as election season gears up in the very important state of Michigan, which has 16 Electoral College votes. Trump surprised many in 2016 to nab those votes by beating Hillary Clinton in Michigan by a narrow margin of 0.23%. Trump won 47.5% of the total votes over Clinton's 47.3%.

Macomb County's white, working class voters are credited for winning the state for Trump. "The vote count in Macomb County, the state's third-largest county, made the difference for Michigan on Tuesday," MLive reported.

Trump took about 54% of the vote in Macomb County, to Clinton's 42%. The difference of 48,348 votes was enough to swing Michigan for Trump.
