Since being tapped for the ticket, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence has worked to woo over conservatives still skeptical of Donald Trump as their party’s nominee.

Next week, Pence — the governor of Indiana and a former congressman — will head to Capitol Hill to address the House Republican Conference.

On Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Pence’s appearance.

“Earlier this year, Donald Trump spoke to the House Republican conference and had a productive conversation with our members,” Ryan said. “We’re glad to welcome his running mate and our former colleague, Governor Mike Pence, to do the same. Mike Pence is a great friend and a true conservative, and I’m grateful that he’s coming to rally our members down the homestretch.

“Mike has added tremendous value to Donald Trump’s campaign and House Republicans are excited to learn more about their plans to succeed in November and get our nation back on track,” Ryan added.
