Pence calls VP-elect Kamala Harris to offer congratulations

WASHINGTON (AP) – Vice President Mike Pence has called Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to offer his congratulations. That’s according to two people familiar with the conversation who spoke on condition of anonymity to share details of a private conversation. One of the people familiar with the Thursday afternoon conversation described it as a “good call,” with Pence congratulating his successor and offering assistance. The call comes 10 weeks after the election and less than a week before President-elect Joe Biden and Harris are set to take office. It marks the first contact between elected officials from the outgoing and incoming administrations.
