The motorcade carrying the body of the Rev. Billy Graham to Charlotte's Billy Graham Library rolled through the shopping district in Black Mountain, N.C. yesterday, where Graham often shopped or caught trains.

The procession is part of more than a week of mourning that culminates with his burial Friday at his library in Charlotte.

  • Graham will "lie in honor" in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday and Thursday, March 1, the Speaker's office announced.
  • Upon the arrival of the casket, Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take part in a bicameral service.

Ex-FDA chief: Pence campaigning after COVID exposure puts others at risk

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said "the short answer is yes" when asked whether Vice President Mike Pence is putting others at risk by continuing to campaign after several aides tested positive for COVID-19, stressing that the White House needs to be "very explicit about the risks that they're taking."

Why it matters: The New York Times reports that at least five members of Pence's inner circle, including his chief of staff Marc Short and outside adviser Marty Obst, have tested positive for the virus. Pence tested negative on Sunday morning, according to the VP's office, and he'll continue to travel for the final stretch of the 2020 campaign.

Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, tested positive for the coronavirus Saturday and is quarantining, according to a White House statement.

Why it matters: Short is Pence's closest aide, and was one of the most powerful forces on the White House coronavirus task force. Pence and second lady Karen Pence tested negative for the virus on Sunday morning, according to the vice president's office.
