Pence may return to Jacksonville

Looks like President Donald Trump isn’t the only executive branch politician to be returning to Florida this weekend.

Vice President Mike Pence could be returning to Jacksonville on Saturday, a new Federal Aviation Administration notice suggests. Announced flight restrictions  — three nautical miles around, 3,000 feet up — match Pence’s travel restrictions. Trump is normally accompanied by 30 nautical mile restrictions up to 18,000 feet.

Pence has been to Jacksonville before, including a September visit to a church.

Trump’s frequent visits to Palm Beach County are causing problems. At least one local politician wants to enact a special tax on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to recoup security costs.

Trump’s latest trip is expected to land sometime after 6 p.m. Friday and leave before 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
