---- — PRINCETON, Ind. — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence traveled to southern Indiana this morning, a week after a similar trip was called off because of his wife’s emergency gallbladder surgery.

The governor’s office says Pence was scheduled to take part in an economic development announcement this morning at a Vuteq USA auto parts factory near Princeton. The company is a supplier for Toyota, which has some 4,000 workers at a factory near that Gibson County city.

Pence next heads to Evansville, where he will attend a Kiwanis luncheon meeting at the Aztar Hotel and tour the University of Southern Indiana.

Pence had been scheduled to visit Evansville and Jeffersonville last Thursday but stayed in Indianapolis until his wife was released from the outpatient surgery.
