GORDONSVILLE, VA -- With disruptions in the global supply chain becoming a key area of concern amid the growing coronavirus outbreak, VP Mike Pence is thanking workers at a Walmart distribution center in Virginia.

On their visit, Pence and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue watched operations and talked with some Walmart managers.
