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.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
