He said Pence himself stood up to ask if everyone was OK.
While leaving the runway, Pence took the time to pose for a picture with firefighters who were called to the scene.
It was raining at the time of the incident. According to the Associated Press, the plane made a rough impact when it landed. The pilot slammed on the brakes and travellers could smell burning rubber.
Passengers, including Pence, were evacuated through the back of the plane.
So thankful everyone on our plane is safe. Grateful for our first responders & the concern & prayers of so many. Back on the trail tomorrow!
