Vice President Mike Pence is planning to travel to Sanibel, Florida, on Tuesday -- a regular vacation spot for his family -- as President Donald Trump fights to try to reverse his re-election defeat, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The Federal Aviation Administration placed a VIP flight restriction zone on the Florida island from Tuesday to Saturday. Pence is the VIP, the person said, and intends to travel to the island on Tuesday.
