Pence: Cheney Is a VP Role Model For Me

Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence said Sunday that he views former Vice President Dick Cheney as a role model whom he would want to emulate if he and Donald Trump are elected to the White House. “I frankly hold Dick Cheney in very high regard in his role as vice president and as an American,” Pence told ABC News. “Vice President Cheney had experience in Congress as I do, and he was very active in working with members of the House and the Senate.” Pence said he wants to “champion” Trump’s agenda on Capitol Hill and be a “very active” vice president. Cheney was often criticized as having too much power in the Bush administration.
