Mike Pence speaks on UNC campus, students protest in responseBy Lauren Rhodes | Apr. 27
Former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was on UNC's campus Wednesday evening, speaking at an event titled “Saving America from the Woke Left." The event was shadowed by a counter-protest by the UNC Young Democrats in the Pit.
- “I came here tonight to say that I believe we're on the verge of a great comeback for freedom, and I believe we will save America from the woke left, and this freedom generation will lead the way,” Pence said.
- “When we think of UNC, we think of progress and opportunity. We don't think of Mike Pence,” said Anderson Clayton, chairperson of the North Carolina Democratic Party.
