(Washington Examiner) A North Carolina high school teacher allegedly told her students Vice President Mike Pence should be "shot in the head" while Pence was in the state to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop.
The unnamed Cuthbertson High School teacher has been referred to the Secret Service by the Union County Sheriff's Office, according to local Fox 46. The school is in the 9th Congressional District near Charlotte, which Bishop won against Democrat Dan McCready in last week's special election.

"This is the vice president of the United States. He's an elected official,” said Firas Obeid, a parent of two students at the high school, adding he is not a supporter of Pence. "Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make a statement like that to anyone."
