PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Vice President Mike Pence held a rally Thursday at a business in Peoria that makes tactical gear and body armor for the military and law enforcement.
Arizona has been a hot spot for political campaigning in recent weeks.
"It was a great honor. He's an amazing gentleman, he's a really strong Christian as my wife and I are as well, and it's good to see that somebody at that level of government really has his values," said Jason Beck, the owner of Tyr Tactical. "Who wouldn't want any administration or any vice president or president for that matter, or congressman or senator, that really wants to back the blue and really focus on what we're trying to do."
Beck started the company after working as a combative instructor and teaching US special operations with law enforcement all over the country. He started designing body armor and gear that fit his style of training, and soon, the business took off.
