Pence Says Republicans Need To Be "Party Of The Constitution"

Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke on the South Coast tonight last night, saying that the Republican Party must reject the arguments of those who still are trying to contest last year’s Presidential Election.

Pence says that while the election results stung, the Presidency belong to the American people.

The former Vice President told an audience at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley that when it comes to the election, the Constitution comes first, and the Republican Party needs to stand for it.

Pence was critical of the Biden Administration, saying that it’s already pushed the nation backwards on issues ranging from border policies to taxes.

He spoke at the Reagan Library as part of a series featuring Republican Party leaders talking about their visions for the future of the party.

Pence outlined his priorities, which included strong border defenses, a U.S. first trade policy, and treating China as a global threat.
