PHOENIX — Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday praised the benefits of the Trump administration’s tax cuts to a lively group of supporters.

He told hundreds of supporters at an upscale hotel in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe that the cuts will save a typical family of four about $2,100 a year.

He told them that the average Arizona worker eventually will receive $4,000 more annually through raises and bonuses as business owners pass their tax savings on to employees.

It was the latest stop by the Republican on a tour around the United States to promote the cuts.

Pence arrived in Arizona on a midday flight.

He was returning to Washington later Tuesday.

During his brief visit, Pence also attended a private event with Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who appeared with him at the tax policy gathering.

U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, another Arizona Republican, spoke on a panel at the policy presentation.

The “Tax Cuts to Put America First” series has been touring the U.S. since February, traveling to states including Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
