Watch live: Republican presidential candidate Mike Pence speaks at conservative conference in Atlanta

Former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday is one of several candidates vying for the GOP presidential nomination who are appearing at The Gathering, a conservative conference in Atlanta organized by radio host Erick Erickson on Friday and Saturday.

Pence recently told The Hill that he’s eager to draw a distinction between his own priorities and those of the rest of the Republican field, and former President Trump in particular. Trump, who has not committed to the first GOP debate on Aug. 23, will also be absent from the conference in Atlanta.

Pence is slated to speak on Friday at 10:00 a.m. ET.
