WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Mike Pence is set to rally support in Jeffersontown for a White House-backed healthcare overhaul.

Kentucky has often been front-and-center in the battle over former President Barack Obama's sweeping healthcare law.

Pence is scheduled to tour Harshaw Trane, an energy services company, with Gov. Matt Bevin. The event is part of an effort to reassure conservative Republicans who have raised objections to the House GOP healthcare proposal that would scrap "Obamacare."

Pence has been the chief salesman for President Donald Trump's push to repeal and replace Obama's healthcare law. The House is expected to vote on the bill in less than two weeks but faces fierce resistance from critics, including Sen. Rand Paul.
