Pence calls Kamala Harris to offer assistance ahead of inauguration


Vice President Mike Pence called his soon-to-be successor, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, to congratulate her and offer his assistance before she and President-elect Joe Biden are sworn in next Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter said.

The phone call on Thursday between Pence and Harris marked their first discussion since they debated publicly last fall during the vicious presidential campaign.

President Donald Trump, who spent weeks angrily denying his election loss to Biden while falsely asserting widespread fraud, has not called the incoming president.

Trump has acknowledged that the Biden administration will soon take charge but has vowed never to concede the election and has not publicly done so.
