Washington, US Vice President Mike Pence has postponed a planned trip to the state of Indiana on Friday to vote early for the presidential election.
While the reason for the cancellation was not immediately clear, press secretary Devin O’Malley said on Thursday: “Nobody’s sick. There’s no positive tests. The Vice President is planning on travelling on Saturday and Monday.
“We’ll have more information on the Vice President’s schedule next week soon.”
A White House official also said that Pence will vote in Indiana at a later date.
According to a report in The Hill news website, Pence was slated to travel to Indianapolis, where he is still registered to vote, to cast his ballot in person along with his wife, Karen.
But the trip was called off on Thursday afternoon while Pence was in Arizona campaigning, the report added.
On Saturday, Pence will campaign in Florida and in Ohio on Monday on October 12.
The Vice President has taken a critical role in the campaigning after President Donald Trump announced on October 2 that he and the First Lady had tested positive for the coroanvris.
Pence and his wife had tested negative following Trump’s announcement and also on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Trump insisted he was feeling well, but acknowledged on Thursday morning that he is still taking dexamethasone, a steroid, for treatment.
