HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Vice President Mike Pence will not be traveling to Huntsville on Monday as previously planned. A spokesperson with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center informed WHNT News 19 on Friday night that there’s been a change in plans. No explanation was provided for the change. Just that the VP would look forward to a trip in the future.
Pence was expected to come to Huntsville Monday to campaign on behalf of Senator Luther Strange. During Thursday night’s debate with opponent Roy Moore, Sen. Strange said that Vice President Mike Pence would visit the Rocket City on Monday. We don’t know if the change in plans impacts the VP Pence’s visit to Birmingham too. Pence was expected to travel to Alabama on the heels of President Donald Trump as the two campaign for the senator in his bid to defeat the state’s former chief justice, Roy Moore, in Tuesday’s GOP Primary Runoff. The Strange camp has leaned heavily on the president’s endorsement in their campaign.
