LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Vice President Mike Pence is on a three-day visit to California to raise money and talk about President Donald Trump's push for a tax overhaul.

Pence arrived in Los Angeles on Sunday after making news for walking out of the 49ers-Colts football game, saying he disagreed with the nearly dozen San Francisco players who took a knee during the national anthem.

Pence and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are scheduled to hold a luncheon fundraiser at a country club in wealthy Newport Beach on Monday.

He and McCarthy are expected to fly to Sacramento later in the afternoon for an event to discuss tax reform.

Pence's visit, which would focus on pockets of conservatism in the huge state, could raise millions of dollars for the GOP.
