BREAKING: Pence coming to Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale this weekend

UPDATE: Vice President Mike Pence will come to Palm Beach this weekend before traveling to Fort Lauderdale Sunday morning to attend church.

The White House confirmed Friday evening that Pence will travel to South Florida on Saturday after holding a small business listening session earlier in the day in Jacksonville.

The vice president will speak at a Club for Growth gathering at The Breakers, the lavish Palm Beach hotel noted for its celebrity visitors, on Saturday night. On Sunday morning, the White House said Pence will attend church at Church by the Glades in Coral Springs.

The White House did not say where Pence will spend the night Saturday, but it can be expected he will stay at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, where the president is spending the weekend.

The Palm Beach Post reported earlier Friday that Pence would visit, based on Federal Aviation Administration flight restrictions issued for Fort Lauderdale on Sunday.

EARLIER STORY: It looks like Vice President Mike Pence may make a trip to Fort Lauderdale this weekend, as President Donald Trump spends a few days at his Mar-a-Lago Club just an hour north.

After visiting Jacksonville on Saturday to hold a small business listening session with Gov. Rick Scott, it appears Pence then will go to Fort Lauderdale on Sunday morning, according to temporary flight restrictions issued Friday morning by the Federal Aviation Administration.
