Vice President Mike Pence has canceled a planned trip to Florida's Sanibel Island with his family after it was publicly reported that he was going on vacation as President Trump is attempting to contest the outcome of the election.
Though Pence tweeted that he told his staff Monday the 2020 fight “ain’t over," he was slated to leave the next day for Sanibel and flight restrictions were in place.
But those restrictions have been lifted and his trip has been called off. Pence’s staff has scheduled events for him around Washington, including a trip to Arlington Cemetery today for Veterans Day and an address at the Council for National Policy in Virginia Friday.
The weather on Sanibel Island, on Florida's west coast and close to Fort Myers, is also poor this week as Tropical Storm Eta hits further north. Local officials said they were concerned about potential flooding.
Eta is now set for landfall along the Big Bend of Florida, just to the east of Ocala, late Thursday or early Friday morning, CNN Meteorologist Michael Guy said.
