The Secret Service is briefing local law enforcement about possible visits to the Twin Cities this week by former President Barack Obama and Vice President Mike Pence, FOX 9 has learned.

Obama would be attending Thursday’s memorial for George Floyd.

Pence would be visiting Friday.

Law enforcement sources tell FOX 9 Investigator Tom Lyden they are concerned a Pence visit could further enflame and motivate rioters in the Twin Cities.
