Pence also argued that final-weekend rallies in states such as Virginia, in which Clinton has had a solid lead, and Minnesota, which has not elected a GOP presidential nominee since 1972, shows that the Trump campaign is capitalizing on momentum and voter enthusiasm with Election Day now just two days away.

"I'm hoping they've got some information that suggests the ground is swelling", Lewis said. Touching upon his home state's reputation as a bastion of auto racing, Pence added, "We are wheel to wheel here in the state of MI and we're going to sprint to the finish and take the checkered flag on November 8". "I do think they sense something or they wouldn't be doing it".

To be sure, Clinton is making two stops in Democrat-leaning MI in the final few days of the race.

Changes under Trump would include repealing the Affordable Care Act "lock stock and barrel", and calling a special session of Congress to quickly do so if necessary, Pence said, a prospect contingent on Republicans retaining control of the House and Senate.
