Earlier in the day, while touring a Worldwide Equipment Inc. facility in the state, he slammed West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in a likely preview of what could be a crucial Senate race for both parties.
At one point, Pence praised Senator Capito for her approval of the tax reform plan while criticizing Senator Joe Manchin. "When the time came to repeal and replace the disaster of Obamacare, Joe voted 'no.' When we empowered West Virginia to defund Planned Parenthood, Joe voted 'no.' And when it comes to that wall that we're gonna build on the southern border, Joe said, quote, 'Well, I'm not voting for the wall either'".
He said their hearts were with the members of congress and others on the train, their prayers with the families of those who were killed or injured and their gratitude with first responders.
Still, Pence held firm.
Second woman 'arrested' in Tehran for hijab protest
Many Islamists believe hijab should not be imposed by the law, though they consider it a religious task for every Muslim woman. Despite the fear of reprisals, millions of women in Iran defy the restrictions on a daily basis.
"The VP's comments are exactly why Washington sucks", Manchin tweeted just hours after Pence's speech on Wednesday.
Manchin is facing a tough re-election in a state President Trump won handily, so it makes sense that he would seek to bolster his moderate credentials by defending the president.
Vice President Mike Pence will visit White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, this week to visit a local business and address lawmakers at the Republican Congressional Retreat.
Even Trump's immigration proposal has received a lukewarm reception from Republicans in Congress because it includes a path to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million people residing in the US illegally.
We CAN talk about mental health
The First Minister said: "We want to create a Scotland where all mental health stigma and discrimination is challenged. For the past couple of years it's been a bit easier because of my mental health team behind me.
Pence's appearance was one of a series of events publicizing the new tax law and promoting its benefits to workers and employers.
GOP political ambitions for Manchin's seat could partly explain Pence's aggressive speech Wednesday.
It was, he said, "the most accomplished year of the conservative agenda in 30 years". "That's real results for the American people".
Manchin met with the White House's legislative team 21 times during tax overhaul negotiations to "make tax cuts larger and permanent for the middle class, not big businesses and millionaires", the senator said.
