KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) - A modest crowd at the Kinston Regional Airport supporting Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday.

Supporters waited hours in light rain to see and hear the message from Vice President Pence, as he and the President stump for votes in North Carolina during the final 2 weeks before the General Election.

One major difference at the VP rally that was not seen during the presidents rally is that all people were required to wear masks.

Messages echo through the crowd as a reminder.

Supporters in the stands and those in general seating began pouring into the area around 4′oclock after going through security checks to enter.

Once inside, the music was playing and excitement building.

People attending each had their own reasons for wanting to be at the rally.

Many said that supporting VP Pence is much like being at a Trump rally, meaning support for the VP is a vote for President Trump.

State GOP leaders say the rural region is important to winning the election.

The state GOP chair said the Trump administration has supported Eastern Carolina farmers and expects that to continue if elected for another 4 years.

He also said the Trump Pence campaign is not taking North Carolina for granted and why you’ve seen so many Trump members campaigning hard in the battleground state.
