Mike Pence Campaigns at Scott County GOP Reagan Dinner

Vice presidential candidate, Mike Pence, spoke to a sold-out Republican fundraiser in Bettendorf Tuesday night. The Indiana Governor campaigned for running-mate, Donald Trump to a crowd of 500, at the Scott County GOP's annual Reagan Dinner.

Pence also commended Trump for his response following the 2005 video released last week, in which he suggested his celebrity gave him the right to kiss and grope women without consent. 

"It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong."

Governor Terry Branstad and several candidates for Iowa senate and house also spoke at the GOP dinner. 

And, US Senator, Tom Cotton, from Arkansas, campaigned for Iowa US Senator Chuck Grassley. 

"If you don't return Chuck Grassley to the United States Senate, republicans will not hold a majority."

Tuesday night was the 8th annual Scott County Republican Party's Ronald Reagan Dinner. It's the party's largest fundraiser each year.
