Mike Pence’s stop in Boise Thursday will be short and sweet, with no media availability or public access — except for those who attend the $1,000-per-head fundraiser the Republican vice-presidential candidate is headlining.
“We would love him to do a press event. But he's not able to break away and do that this time,” said Layne Bangerter, director of the Trump-Pence campaign in Idaho. “We would like more of his time. We realize we’re not a battleground state, so we support their decision to maximize time in key areas for both Mr. Trump and Mr Pence.”
The 4:30 p.m. event is at the Zions Bank building. The Indiana governor will return to his home state afterward.
“He’s arriving to a lot of enthusiasm in Idaho,” Bangerter said. The Trump-Pence ticket “will do very well here.”
