Greeted by cheers and applause from a crowd waving American flags, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence stepped out of Air Force Two just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at Vandenberg Air Force Base for the second stop on a two-day trip to California.
After disembarking, the Pences greeted the crowd and got into a motorcade taking them to briefing.
Wednesday's trip marked Pence's first visit to Vandenberg since taking office. Earlier in the day, he delivered remarks at a Coalinga fundraiser for President Donald Trump's re-election campaign and spoke about trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada at a Lemoore farm.
