Governor's office closed for "out of office staff meetings"

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Mike Pence's Statehouse office is shut down for the day while his staff is meeting "out of office."

A sign posted on the door of the governor's office Friday reads "Our office will be closed Friday February 15th for out of office staff meetings."

The lights were out and none of the dozens of staffers who normally work in the office appeared to be inside.

A Pence spokeswoman did not immediately return an email or phone call seeking an explanation Friday morning. Friday is neither a state nor federal holiday and most other Statehouse employees showed up to work.
