It's been more than 60 years since a sitting president or vice president has visited Anderson.

"As the President said yesterday, the United States has 'great strength and patience, ' but all options are on the table", US vice-president Mike Pence said in a speech before the United Nations Security Council on September 20. Rather, it was the continuation of a campaign by President Donald Trump's administration that is alternately attempting to woo and strong-arm Donnelly into supporting whatever the GOP plan ends up being.

Pence is set to arrive in Indianapolis at noon and then travel to Anderson.


"I feel no pressure at all", Donnelly said, "because the vice president is my friend but I don't work for the vice president. But President Trump and I are undeterred".

He added: "Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us".

"I'm hopeful Sen. Donnelly will hear the message of Vice President Pence today and the message of President Trump next week and do the right thing", Messer said. John McCain's decision Friday afternoon to vote "no" on the latest proposal.


"There's an old joke that says the tax code is 10 times the length of the Bible, with none of the good news", Pence said before turning his attention to Donnelly, who was in attendance.

"A vote against Graham-Cassidy is a vote to save ObamaCare", Pence told a crowd in Anderson, Ind., speaking of the legislation co-sponsored by GOP Sens.
