eurobanks/iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Vice President Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Mike Pence met for lunch Wednesday at the Naval Observatory, the official residence of the vice president. This was the second time Pence and Biden have met since Donald Trump won the presidential election a week ago.
Pence and Biden were accompanied by their spouses, Karen Pence and Dr. Jill Biden. Pence’s youngest daughter Charlotte was also present but she did not join the lunch.
Pence and Biden first met for 30 minutes last Wednesday in Biden’s West Wing office, shortly after Trump and Obama met.
According to Biden’s office, during their first meeting the two men “spoke about their time working together in Congress and their friendship dating back many years. The vice president talked with the vice president-elect about the key duties of the vice president, and discussed a number of specific policy portfolios that have been a critical focus for him during his time in office, including NATO and eastern Europe and expanding access to the middle class.”
Pence, who is still serving as governor of Indiana, is now headed back to the Hoosier state. He will return to Washington, D.C. on Thursday to meet with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and House Republicans.
