LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Vice President Mike Pence has been chosen to deliver the commencement address this spring at Liberty University.
Pence will speak May 11 to an expected crowd of 18,000 graduates and 40,000 guests.
Pence announced his speaking plans Friday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
Liberty, founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, is one of the nation's largest Christian universities and is frequently a preferred platform for conservative speakers and politicians. President Donald Trump delivered the graduation speech there in 2017.
