VP Mike Pence speaks at KC rally for Republican candidates in Missouri, Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With the November midterm elections just five days away, Vice President Mike Pence was in Kansas City on Friday.

Pence spoke Friday afternoon at a rally at Hy-Vee Arena. The rally Pence plans to attend aims to gather support for Republican candidates in both Kansas and Missouri.

Pence visited Kansas City in July to promote President Donald Trump’s tax cuts and help raise money for Rep. Kevin Yoder’s campaign. He stumped for Kansas gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach last week in Wichita.

Kansas City police warned that drivers may notice additional traffic near the Buck O’Neil Bridge and West Bottoms area while the Vice President is in town. Delays are expected to last until 4 p.m. Friday.

“Temporary closures, along with some permanent closures will take place. Impacted areas are expected to be open by the evening rush hour,” Kansas City police tweeted.

President Trump visited Columbia, Missouri, on Thursday for a campaign rally at Columbia Regional Airport.
