Vice President Pence's flight was diverted from New Hampshire back to Washington on Tuesday after being called back to an undiscovered emergency.
Pence was planning to visit Salem on Tuesday to attend a round table and comment on the opioid crisis and illegal drug flow in New Hampshire.
But shortly before the Vice President was scheduled to arrive, an advertiser at the event told the crowd that Air Force Two had been diverted due to an emergency.
"We have a situation where the Vice President was called back to Washington," Randy Gentry, a representative of Pence's office, told the audience and said the event was canceled.
A spokesman for the Pence & # 39; s office said the Vice President had to go back to the White House and said the Vice President would return to New Hampshire later.
President Trump is in Washington on Tuesday but has no public events scheduled.
Sources of Capitol Hill and the White House could not immediately provide details when asked about the type of emergency it involved.
