Travels of Mike Pence—October 2016
The big event on the calendar in early October was the vice
presidential debate at Longwood University. Following the debate Pence went on a
three-day bus tour starting in Virginia and winding through
Pennsylvania and Ohio. Pence stuck with the ticket after the
7 release of the "Access Hollywood" video of Trump, and he is busy
stumping in battleground states. Another bit of drama occured on October
27 when Pence's plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport.
