A planned visit from Vice President Mike Pence was abruptly canceled today.
Pence had planned to visit the Granite Recovery Center in Salem to discuss the opioid crisis.
A spokesman for his office said a last-minute situation required the Vice President to remain in Washington. He said it was not an emergency.
According to a copy of his planned remarks, Vice President Pence intended to press the Trump administration’s case for combatting the opioid crisis by curbing illegal immigration.
