WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Wednesday, November 30th he's eager to work with Congress to move forward on President-elect Donald Trump's agenda to "get this economy moving again, rebuild our military and keep the promises" that President-elect Trump made to the American people.
Pence, a former member of Congress, was at the Capitol Wednesday for private meetings with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
Before his meeting with Ryan, Pence invoked a phrase he used during a previous Capitol visit: "My word to members of the House and Senate is 'buckle up.'"
