In what will undoubtedly be taken as good news by the market, Vice President Mike Pence’s office just confirmed that both the VP and the second lady, Karen Pence have tested negative for COVID-19.

Pence’s last known interaction with Trump apparently occurred on Tuesday before the debate, when the two met in the Oval Office.

Of course, there have been instances where people who have contracted the virus don’t test positive for several days, and both will likely continue to be tested in the coming days, since the incubation period is up to 14 days, with a median of about 4 to 5 days.

The White House just added that it will keep staffers for the president and the vice president separate in the coming days.

Hope Hicks, the senior Trump advisor who initially tested positive Thursday, setting off the latest West Wing outbreak scare, has reportedly been in contact with more than 20 other staffers.

As we noted earlier, Biden is expected to be tested Friday morning. We expect those results will be in soon.

With Pence “safe” – for now, at least – the MSM is turning its attention to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who met with Trump early Wednesday before meeting with Democratic leaders, including Nancy Pelosi, on Capitol Hill later in the day.

Which means there’s a chance that both the Democratic and Republican leadership might be sickened before the election.
