CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted toured the new Lordstown Motors plant on Wednesday afternoon.
The company bought the facility in November 2019 after General Motors decided to close it.
Lordstown Motors makes an electric pickup truck, which will be previewed during Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to the plant on Thursday.
In addition to discussing the progress being made at the plant, Gov. DeWine said he and his wife both tested negative for COVID-19 after being screened live during Tuesday’s briefing from Columbus. Lt. Gov. Husted added that he is “clear” too.
