While Pence was speaking inside the Marriott downtown, voices of dissent were making their case heard outside.


 
Gathered across the street and separated from speech attendees by a row of fences, up to 200 demonstrators expressed their anger about a number of issues, including the recent Putin summit.
 

No information is being released on the Hawley fundraiser, but at 2:30 p.m., the Vice President will be at the Regency Conference Center in O'Fallon, Illinois for Bost.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Bost event is closed to the press.
