ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - An anonymous donor has pledged to pay overtime costs of Colorado public safety personnel connected to Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to a ski town earlier this month.

Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo tells The Aspen Times that the county Republican Party had found a person who agreed to pay the overtime costs of law enforcement, public works and fire personnel who played a part in Pence’s security.

DiSalvo says he submitted an $18,500 invoice to Pitkin County Republicans Chair Anna Zane.

Zane did not return the newspaper’s call Monday seeking comment about the reimbursement.

Pence visited Aspen on July 22 to attend a private fundraiser that benefited President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee.
