Pence quizzed by Iowa voter on election certification decision

Former Vice President and Columbus native Mike Pence is defending his decision to certify the 2020 presidential election results following the Capitol riot.

While on the campaign trail in Sioux City, Iowa this week, a woman questioned Pence, claiming he had the constitutional power to block the certification of Electoral College results and prevent Joe Biden from becoming president. Pence disputed her claim, saying the Constitution is clear that he did not have the power to do so.

Former President Trump repeatedly called on Pence to reject the election results of key states won by Biden and send them back to the states for further review. Pence said that the former president was wrong on January 6th and he is still wrong.
