(From MNN) -- Vice President Mike Pence will not be appearing at a "Keep America Great" rally in Minnesota tonight. The Trump campaign says Second Lady Karen Pence will speak at the event at InterContinental Hotel in St. Paul.
Pence is traveling to Washington in his role as leader of the White House coronavirus task force. That state has been hit hard by Covid-19.
The vice president is expected to visit 3-M in Maplewood today. The Minnesota company manufactures face masks that have been in high demand since the spread of the virus.
Pence and his wife are also postponing a scheduled campaign event today in Onalaska, Wisconsin.
