(*6*) Pence stated.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, previous South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and also North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum all concurred that Pence made the ideal choice on Jan 6, in spite of stress from Trump and also, later on, risks from the crowd that stormed the Capitol and also disturbed the day’s process.
Christie’s remarks throughout the debate Wednesday were one of the most acclamatory, as he disturbed the debate mediators to commend Pence.
“He deserves not grudging credit, he deserves our thanks as Americans for putting his oath of office and the Constitution of the United States before personal, political and unfair pressure and the argument we need to have in this party before we can move onto the issues that Ron [DeSantis] talked about is we have to dispense with the person who said we need to suspend the Constitution to put forward his political career,” Christie stated at the moment.
“I welcome the fact that almost everybody on that stage made it clear that I did my duty that day,” Pence stated Sunday. “And I think the American people deserve to hear where every single one of the candidates for the Republican nomination stand.”
