Pence will leave Tuesday for Sanibel, an island near Fort Meyers, where he has vacationed before. A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) advisory indicated the vice president would be there through Saturday.

Spokespeople for Pence did not respond to requests for comment about whether the vacation was planned prior to the election.

Pence has remained largely out of the public eye since appearing alongside Trump early Wednesday morning, where the president falsely claimed he had won the election. In the time since, Trump and some allies have alleged without evidence that widespread voter fraud is to blame for why Biden is leading in several battleground states.

The vice president has been careful not to make such sweeping allegations while remaining supportive of the president.

"Told @VP Team Today, 'it ain’t over til it’s over.. and this AIN’T over!' President @realDonaldTrump has never stopped fighting for us and we’re gonna Keep Fighting until every LEGAL vote is counted!" Pence tweeted Monday.

But Pence has not made the same charges as Trump about the election being stolen. He has also carried on with his day-to-day duties in a way Trump has not.

The president has not spoken publicly since the Thursday night briefing and has had no public events on his schedule since. Pence held a coronavirus task force meeting on Monday afternoon and held a fundraising call for the Trump campaign's legal fund on Friday.

Pence may visit Georgia after his stay in Florida, according to The New York Times, to boost Sens.
