ROBBINSVILLE -

(AP) - President Donald Trump's adviser and New Jersey native Kellyanne Conway came to the state to promote the GOP's proposed tax overhaul.

Conway appeared Tuesday at a Robbinsville restaurant, where she also put Vice President Mike Pence on speaker phone to address those gathered at her table.

Pence says the administration is working to pass "the largest tax cut in American history."

She also went to Branchburg to tout the tax plan.

Her visit comes a day after the president's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin pushed the plan on Monday in Berkeley Township.

The House and Senate have competing plans. The House plan leaves a property tax deduction of up to $10,000 in place. The Senate version eliminates it entirely.

New Jersey has the country's highest property taxes.
