Vice President Mike Pence made a swing through Pennsylvania on Wednesday into a post-acquittal victory lap, rousing a crowd of hundreds barely an hour after the Senate rejected articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

“It's over, America,” Pence told a cheering crowd in a hotel ballroom in a Harrisburg suburb.

Pence, appearing with U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, delivered a standard campaign speech, but injected it with notes of victory and finality.

“I really do believe that the Democrats keep trying to run down this president because they know they can’t run against this president,” Pence said. “I think they tried to impeach this president because they know they can’t defeat this president in November of 2020.”

Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate since 1988 to win Pennsylvania, and the state is expected to be a premier battleground in this year's election.

He won Pennsylvania by less than a percentage point and Trump in 2020 will have the complicated task of unlocking enough votes again in a state where Democrats have pounded Republicans in elections since 2016.
