Vice President Mike Pence is making a stop in the Triad one week before Election Day. 

The campaign event at Piedmont Triad International Airport is part of an aggressive targeting of North Carolina and its 15 electoral votes with the end of the election in sight.

Pence also made an appearance in Kinston Sunday despite his exposure to a top aide who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The vice president's office says that under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria, Pence is considered a “close contact” of his chief of staff but will not quarantine.

Pence's office says that the vice president and his wife, Karen, have tested negative.
