Dr. Ray Gaskins, avid Longwood University supporter, took a break on Monday from the VP Jubilee to wait patiently for the media picnic.

Gaskins sported his unique VIP pass for the debate event — he was one of the very few to receive that type of pass.

“I’m kind of getting used to it,” Gaskins said of his VIP status. “It’s nice.”
