ST PAUL, Minn. — Vice President Mike Pence will not be at Thursday's "Keep America Great" event in St. Paul as previously scheduled.

Second Lady Karen Pence is still scheduled to be in St. Paul on Thursday. The event is still slated for 5 p.m. at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront.

The Vice President and Second Lady were also scheduled to appear in Onalaska, Wisconsin on Thursday, but that event has been postponed, according to a release from Women for Trump.
