  1. Hell!!! I didn’t even know he was coming to Polk County! Is the press leaning that much left of center that they don’t widely announce such a coming event? I would have attended, had I only known.

    1. News of Vice President Pence’s rally was posted at the top of LkldNow on Friday. It was the lead story on the front page of The Ledger with a large photo on Friday, and The Ledger carried another article on Saturday. And several, if not all, of the Tampa TV stations had advance coverage of the vice president’s visit.
