The Indiana Governor was introduced by the winner of the Iowa Caucuses, Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Also appearing with Pence were Senator Chuck Grassley, Congressman Steve King and Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey. Pence urged fellow Republicans to return to the fold in support of Donald Trump. With five days before Election Day, Pence told supporters not to wait until Tuesday.

“Vote early," he says. "Bring a friend.”

During his 40 minute speech, Pence hit hard against the Affordable Care Act and says the country is a more dangerous place than eight years ago. He says the race for the White House comes down to just a few things.

“This election is about our security," he says. "It’s about our prosperity, and it’s about the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”

Pence and Cruz then headed to Michigan as the 2016 election winds down.
