Vice President Mike Pence stopped by Pease Air Force Base in Portsmouth, New Hampshire Wednesday as part of an aggressive schedule campaigning for President Donald Trump.

The crowd numbered a few hundred, according to the Portsmouth Herald. Pence said voters had a choice “between a Trump recovery and a Biden depression.”

With less than two weeks to go, Joe Biden leads Trump by 11 points in New Hampshire in the RealClearPolitics polling average. FiveThirtyEight gives Biden an 87% chance to win the Granite State. It seems to be a much less competitive race this year than in 2016; Trump and Hillary Clinton were practically even in the week before the election, and Clinton barely won the state with only a 0.4% margin of victory.
