BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) — Vice President Mike Pence said it’s time to “put politics aside” and get relief dollars flowing in the wake of the flood waters. Pence made the comments on a visit to Pacific Junction Friday morning.

The Vice President arrived in the metro late Thursday night.

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts was among those on hand for the Vice President’s arrival.

Pence, who toured flood-damaged areas of Nebraska on March 19, visited flood-ravaged Pacific Junction, Iowa, Firday – a town hit hard by the high water fury.

This stop included a visit to Lincoln’s Ridgeview Farms in Pacific Junction.

He told those on hand that the federal government is behind the recovery to rebuild Iowa, “bigger and better than ever before.”

He said it’s remarkable to think that a month has gone by when you see how much water is still here.
