The vice president is scheduled to attend a tax event Thursday in downtown St. Louis. It was organized by America First Policies, a nonprofit that promotes President Donald Trump's agenda. 

Pence's spokeswoman confirmed he also will attend a Hawley fundraiser that day. 

Attorney General Hawley is the front-runner Republican vying for Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill's seat. McCaskill is considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for re-election. 

Trump headlined a fundraiser for Hawley in March. He's scheduled to be back in the state July 24 for another fundraiser for the candidate in Kansas City.
