Governor Mike Pence stumped in Council Bluffs, Iowa at the Mid-America Center where Iowa Senator Joni Ernst was on hand to introduce the Republican Vice President nominee to an energetic crowd of just under 1,000.
During his speech Pence discussed a vision for the future of America and why this is a pivotal election with repercussions far beyond the next four years. It’s possible that the next president could end up appointing three or more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court which already has one vacancy left by the death of Justice Anthony Scalia.
Outside the MAC a handful of protestors had gathered, but were rather calm. Strangely, one protestor was holding the Palestine flag. During Mike Pence's speech four of them came inside and in a unison chant began to disrupt Pence's speech, but they were quickly drowned out by the crowd chanting "USA, USA, USA" and removed without incident by law enforcement.
Governor Pence also spoke about Donald Trump's vision for America and how he plans to Make America Great Again by getting rid of job killing regulations, tax reform, lowing the corporate tax rate, and stopping illegal immigration.
After his speech, Governor Pence walked the rope line shaking hands with supporters who showed up at 7:00am to get a front row place. He also signed autographs and took selfies before leaving the arena.
