Vice President Mike Pence is in New Hampshire Tuesday to discuss the opioid crisis. Pence will meet with public officials and recovery advocates at the Granite Recovery Center in Salem.

The Center runs twelve alcohol and drug rehab programs throughout the state. Its founder, Eric Spofford, regularly hosts Republicans on the campaign trail.

After a meeting with Spofford and alumni of the recovery center, Pence plans to deliver remarks on opioids and illegal drugs.
