NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Pence says he's grateful for the "quick action" of his pilot and first responders when his campaign plane slid off a runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport. No one was injured in the incident yesterday. Donald Trump's running mate told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he felt the plane fishtail after a hard landing. He said first responders were "on the scene at LaGuardia before the aircraft even came to a halt." The plane was coming to New York from Fort Dodge, Iowa.
