VP pool report #5

VP Pence, Price and Regenold took about a 15 minute tour of the Frame USA factory, where Pence actually stepped up to one of the machines and tried his hand at nailing a frame together.

Looking at the results, according to Price, Pence should stay VP and leave the frame-making to the professionals at Frame USA.

Pence laughed at this and proceeded to view the assembly of frames, and was presented at the end with a finished black frame with gold lettering that said, Mr. Vice President.

Earlier in the tour, Regenold lamented the low number of vendors still in business in the U.S.

"I just wanted you to know, in so many places, so many people going out of business," Regenold said. Pence nodded and patted his shoulder.

The tour consisted of five stops around the factory, including a mat cutting station, a laser engraver, shipping, cutting and final assembly of frames. Different Frame USA workers explained and demonstrated their jobs at each station.

Pence chatted amiably with the workers, but did not make remarks to the pool.

Holding now for Pence speech to crowd of roughly 200 assembled on the factory floor. Remarks are expected to be about 25 minutes and are open press.
