Donald Trump’s running mate made a stop in Michigan today.

Mike Pence held a town hall meeting at the Delta Plex Arena in Grand Rapids.

"Let’s get to work!" Pence said. "Let’s make America great again!"

Hundreds showed up to hear GOP vice-presidential nominee, Gov. Mike Pence.

"This is no ordinary time in our nation," Pense said. "We’ve seen America’s stature in the world decline and stifling policies of this administration."

The Indiana governor lauded Donald Trump — saying political correctness needs to go.

And criticized Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine.

Then — he opened the floor to questions.

"I want to know what you and Donald Trump are going to do to save social security," asked one man.

"I tell you what, this is a man who keeps his promises and we are going to keep the promise to seniors in America in social security and Medicare," Pence replied.

Derek McMillan traveled from Benzonia to see Trump’s No. 2.

"I was looking for somebody that is strong in Washington," McMillan says.

Derek asked him about his concerns over voter fraud.

Pence’s answer, he says, did not disappoint him.

"Pence, I did not know," McMillan says. "We drove all the way down here just to listen to him and man, I’m impressed."

"We need a fighter, a builder," Pence said. "That man is Donald Trump."

Pence’s next stop took him to Oakland County, still in Michigan, for a rally.
