Vice President Mike Pence joined Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) in Rockport, Texas, on Thursday amid flood devastation in the region.
Both men addressed Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding, and Second Lady Karen Pence led them all in a prayer. It was a touching moment for Texans and Americans everywhere.
However, when they were done giving their speeches, Pence and Abbott did something Americans might not expect from politicians — they rolled up their sleeves and got to work.
And it wasn’t a minute-long photo op either.
Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs noted there was sweat dripping off Pence’s face while he worked to clear tree debris with Abbott. Both men wore blue work gloves and did the dirty work:

At least 37 people have died in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and thousands have been forced out of their homes. At a time like this, it means more than ever to have state and national leaders standing side-by-side with those affected by this disaster.
