NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A warm "Hoosier" welcome for Vice president-elect Mike Pence as he returns to Indiana where he asks for prayers and support for the Trump Administration. "We are deeply humbled and moved by this warm Hoosier homecoming," Pence said. He said it will be a great honor to serve as Vice PHe asked his friends, family and supporters to "pray for us." Earlier on Thursday Pence joined President-elect Donald Trump in Washington, where they met with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill. Trump also met with President Obama at the White House - the first public step in a transition of power after a bitterly fought election campaign that ended with the Republican businessman's surprise victory. The two men have had almost no one-on-one contact previously. Trump led the "birther" movement that questioned Obama's U.S. citizenship and has pledged to overturn the Democrat's signature policy achievements after he takes office on Jan. 20 Obama campaigned vigorously for Trump's Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and called Trump both temperamentally unfit for the presidency and dangerously unprepared to have access to U.S. nuclear codes. Obama said that despite his major differences with the New York real estate magnate, he would follow the lead of former Republican President George W. Bush in 2008 and ensure a smooth handover to Trump.
