Vice President Pence returned to Baltimore for one of the most important speeches of his political career—as he made his case for a second term for President Trump at the Republican National Convention.

During his term as vice president, Pence has made repeated visits to Baltimore. He toured the port, addressed immigration agents and previously stopped at Fort McHenry.

The historic Fort is a favorite backdrop of the Trump Administration. President Trump spoke there on Memorial Day.
