On Wednesday, August 22, 2018 Vice President Mike Pence visited Rockport, almost exactly one year post-Harvey. His visit to First Baptist Church was by invitation only. People were lined up by 9:30 a.m. for his visit, which occurred around 12:15 p.m. In addition to speaking to guests, Pence visited with local volunteers and FEMA employees. Rockport and Fulton Volunteer Fire Departments and other local first responders stood by as part of the security and protection detail. During part of the day, traffic on Enterprise Boulevard was diverted but Pence was on his way to Houston for another event by 3:00 p.m.
