We know three things for sure: Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to go to New Hampshire on Tuesday, the trip was abruptly called off, and he instead went to the White House for a brief meeting with President Trump. Everything else about the sudden cancelation is a mystery.

Pence got as far as boarding Air Force Two, but never left Washington, D.C., his press secretary, Alyssa Farah, tweeted. "Something came up that required the VP to stay in DC," she added. "We'll reschedule NH shortly." While she wouldn't say what forced Pence to remain in Washington, Farah did say it was "no cause for alarm."
