Pence arrives in Meridian
Among those traveling to see family in Meridian Wednesday was the Vice President-elect of the United States, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
Pence landed about 3:30 p.m. at Meridian Regional Airport and was taken by motorcade to an undisclosed location. His son, 2nd Lt. Michael Pence, Jr., is stationed at NAS Meridian for Marine pilot training.
A spokesperson for Pence told Newscenter 11 he won't be doing any public appearances or any interviews during his time here, that he's just "looking forward to spending the holiday with his son."
Pence did wave and give a thumbs up to the media as he exited the airplane and shook hands and posed for photos with several people. Newscenter 11 was not allowed inside the fenced area at Meridian Aviation.
Pence's campaign did not say how long the Vice President-elect will be in town.
