Former Vice President Mike Pence has undergone surgery to have a pacemaker implanted.

His office says that Wednesday's operation in Virginia went well and that Pence “is expected to fully recover and return to normal activity in the coming days.”

The 61-year-old former vice president had previously been diagnosed with a heart condition called asymptomatic left bundle branch block.

His office says he experienced symptoms over the past two weeks that are associated with a slow heart rate.

Pence is considered a likely 2024 presidential candidate if former President Donald Trump declines to run.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
