He was slated to address a forum in the state about the opioid crisis.
“There’s been an emergency callback,” Randy Gentry, a representative from Pence’s office, told reporters, according to the New York Post. “The vice president was asked to return to Washington so at this time we’re going to cancel today’s event.”
