WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on Mike Pence in the U.S. presidential race (all times EDT):

12:25 p.m.

Donald Trump says that if he becomes president, he’d immediately convene a special session of Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Trump delivered what his campaign billed a major speech Tuesday about President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. He spoke in the Philadelphia suburbs, which are crucial to his hopes of winning Democratic-leaning Pennsylvania.

Trump said Obamacare was “a catastrophe” and has to be replaced “very, very quickly.”

He said if it isn’t replaced, “we will destroy American health care forever.”

Trump left the detailed criticisms of the program to Mike Pence, his running mate. Pence delivered a lengthy takedown of the health law, highlighting the news that the cost of its premiums are rising.
