Vice President Mike Pence is returning to South Florida.

The White House announced late Monday night that Pence will travel to Arizona today to join President Donald Trump at a rally in Phoenix. Afterward, Pence will fly on Air Force Two to Miami, arriving at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Pence will visit Doral, which has a large community of Venezuelan exiles and immigrants, to discuss unrest in Venezuela under left-wing President Nicolas Maduro.

Joining Pence will be Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Marco Rubio and U.S. Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart, R-Miami. They will participate in a “listening session” with Venezuelan migrants and community leaders at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Pence will then deliver a speech.

Trump recently said he’s not ruling out a “military option” for Venezuela, where the Maduro regime has drawn international criticism for his crackdown on dissidents.

Pence recently visited several Latin American nations.
