ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Vice President-elect Mike Pence spent Veterans Day back home in Indiana to pay tribute to the nation's heroes. At the ceremony, Pence gave an address during which he said that he and President-elect Donald Trump are "committed to reforming the Veterans Affairs Health Administration so that we provide our veterans real time world class health care that they have earned." President-elect Donald Trump put his running mate in charge of his White House transition team on Friday, knocking New Jersey Governor Chris Christie down a peg as he began the work of filling top administration jobs. Christie will remain as a vice chair of the transition effort, Trump's campaign said, as he deals with the fallout from the 'Bridgegate' lane closure scandal that has damaged his political standing. The announcement came shortly after Trump aides convened at the real-estate mogul's apartment building in New York City to begin weighing candidates for some of the 4,000 jobs he will have to fill shortly after he takes office on Jan. 20, 2017.
