Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence made a stop in Exeter last night, looking to drum up support for Republican Donald Trump’s struggling New Hampshire campaign.

 

The Indiana Governor told the crowd the choice to be made on November 8th is about the nation’s security, and future prosperity. He cautioned that the balance of the Supreme Court hangs on their vote, and he defended Donald Trump for remarks made during last week’s debate about the validity of American elections.

“As the media was criticizing my running mate this week for actually suggesting that voting fraud happens in places in America, don’t kid yourself. Voter fraud is real,” said Pence.

He also promised a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act, a stronger position on the global stage, and a return of law and order to the nation. 

“So New Hampshire, the choice could not be more clear. It’s change versus the status quo. It’s up versus down. Americans can elect someone who literally personifies the failed establishment in Washington D.C., or we can choose a leader.”

Recent polls show Trump trailing by double digits in New Hampshire. Hillary Clinton is scheduled to campaign in Manchester on Monday.
