Indiana Gov. Mike Pence got a haircut surrounded by journalists on Tuesday, but the barber had no idea he was cutting the hair of the Republican vice presidential candidate.
"Your name was?" the Norristown, Pennsylvania, barber asked after about 20 minutes of cutting Pence's hair in front of CNN and ABC News cameras broadcasting live online.
"Mike Pence," Donald Trump's running mate replied, shaking the barber's hand. "I'm the governor of the state of Indiana, and I'm running for vice president of the United States."
The surprised barber, tapping Pence on the arm, responded, "Go ahead, man. Vice president? Oh, boy."
"Give me a handshake again, man," he continued. "This is great — woo! This is history over here, I'm telling you."
During the haircut, Pence and the barber talked about how long he had owned his barbershop, the places the Indiana governor likes to get a haircut back home, their respective marriages and even football, but there was no mention of the 2016 election.
At one point, the barber mentioned he came in to the shop to cut Pence's hair at the request of a friend, but said he "didn't know it was gonna be nothin' like this," referring to the gaggle of reporters filling the shop.
"Neither did I," Pence replied, before a reporter asked the barber if this was his "first televised haircut."
Pence was visiting the battleground state Tuesday for campaign events while Trump was in Texas taping a town hall event with Fox News' Sean Hannity.
