Vice President Mike Pence says many lives were saved by the administration's actions during the coronavirus pandemic. At an event in New Hampshire, Pence credited medical professionals for helping to save hundreds of thousands of lives. His comments come the same day that the U.S. passed 200-thousand COVID-19 deaths.        Vice President Pence is back in the nation's capital, but he was delayed in getting there after his plane struck a bird. Air Force Two was forced to turn back after leaving New Hampshire to make sure all was safe. Pence ended up jumping on a cargo plane for the trip back to Washington, DC.       Voters are being motivated by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Over 40-thousand people registered to vote within two days of Ginsburg's death last Friday. Ginsburg was 87 and died from pancreatic cancer.       Executives from Disney want to know when their theme parks can reopen in California. Chairman Josh D'Amaro is demanding California release a set of guidelines that would pave the way for the parks to reopen after being closed for months due to the coronavirus. He noted the importance of Disneyland and California Adventure in both the local and state economies.        The CDC is looking to make Halloween a little less scary this year as the coronavirus pandemic rages on. The health agency outlined how to make trick-or-treating a safe event. However, the CDC recommends people avoid traditional trick-or-treating by changing how candy is handed out.
