It appears Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence has canceled a scheduled trip to Nebraska.
The Omaha World Herald reports Nebraska Republican Party Chairman Dan Welch says he has indirectly heard from the campaign that Pence will not attend a rally and fundraiser scheduled for Omaha Tuesday.
Welch tells the newspaper he doesn’t know the reason for the cancellation. Politico reports Nebraska Republicans tell the publication the political arm of Gov. Pete Ricketts cancelled the event.
The move comes on the heels of an especially personal, brutal debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton in St. Louis which began with questions about a 2005 video release. In the video, Trump uses foul language to brag about various conquests of women due to his celebrity status.
Trump apologized and called it “locker room” talk, then turned on Clinton to suggest she covered up worst deeds by her husband when Bill Clinton was president.
The Pence campaign has apparently also canceled other events, one in New Jersey and another in Iowa.
Pence, the governor of Indiana, is scheduled to make campaign appearances in Florida today.
