Pences now alone in house

Gov. Mike Pence and First Lady Karen Pence are officially empty nesters.

They moved their youngest daughter, Audrey, into her college in Boston over Labor Day weekend.

"Did you cry?" a reporter asked.

"That's classified," Pence said. "Mrs. Pence and I are now empty nesters and the people of Indiana have given us a pretty big nest so we've got some adjustments."

The couple's other two children, son Michael and daughter Charlotte, are also in college.

The Pences live in the 10,500-square-foot governor's residence that has 23 rooms and 11 bathrooms, along with a separate carriage house for guests.
