Travels of Mike Pence—August 2016

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton  |  U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine  ||  Donald Trump  |  Gov. Mike Pence

The first full month of the general election campaign.  Pence did rallies and town halls but there was little information on his fundraising activities; only a handful were reported.  Pence's unannouced stop at a black barbershop in Norristown, PA on Aug. 23 generated more news reports than many of his scheduled events
