Vice President Mike Pence has canceled a planned trip to Atlanta to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.
According to the VP's press secretary, Pence postponed his trip after being briefed on the impact of Hurricane Michael late Wednesday evening.
This is the second time Pence was forced to cancel a trip to the state because of a hurricane. He was set to campaign for Kemp in September but rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence.
Republicans in the state were hoping that a visit from the Vice President would continue to build upon the momentum gained from a visit by Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday.
