Pence's office put out a statement Sunday night, responding to critics: "The Vice President
was not going to miss the Las Vegas memorial prayer walk on Saturday, which he was honored to attend on behalf of President Trump. If the Vice President
did not go to Indiana for the Colts game, he would have flown back to D.C. for the evening - which means flying directly over Indiana. Instead, he made a shorter trip to Indiana for a game that was on his schedule for several weeks."
