GM Says Pence Was Wrong About Lordstown's Future

General Motors says Vice President Mike Pence was incorrect in saying that a fledgling electric vehicle maker and a new affiliated company have secured funding to buy GM's closed Lordstown plant. 

Pence made the comments Tuesday while visiting a business in Lancaster. GM spokesperson Jim Cain says 25 million dollars obtained by Workhorse Group Incorporated from private investors is not directly related to a sale of the Lordstown plant. Pence's office and a Workhorse spokesperson didn't immediately respond to follow-up inquiries about the vice president's comments. Cain says discussions about the details and conditions of a potential purchase are ongoing between GM, Workhorse and its new affiliated company. Cain says the buyer would be that affiliate, not Workhorse.
