Vice President Mike Pence is expected to speak shortly at Wingate University in Wingate, NC.

We have arrived at Wingate University in Wingate, NC, where Vice President Mike Pence is expected to speak shortly. White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and candidate Dan Bishop are also expected to give remarks, according to White House guidance.

We are in an auditorium that seats about 550 people. It is full. A White House aide says another 160 people are in an overflow room watching. 

Social media would indicate there are some protesters outside, but your pooler was brought in through a back entrance and did not see them. 

Before the speech, Rep. Mark Meadows worked the auditorium, shaking hands and joking with guests. At least two seemed to reference his frequent appearances on Fox News.

The event is open press, but I will endeavor to send any major highlights in the next pool report.
