INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Vice President-elect Mike Pence says his administration won't stop working hard in the weeks to come.

Indiana's Republican governor told reporters Monday that his "wonderful team" plans to "finish strong and serve Hoosiers to the very last hour."

Pence has been largely absent from the state since his selection in July as Donald Trump's running mate. He has since has flown around the country campaigning for Trump.

Last week he was named chairman of Trump's presidential transition team. The role will have him focused on building the incoming president's administration.

Pence has ruled-out stepping down to make way for Republican Governor-elect Eric Holcomb. He says his administration will "finish the job" before handing the keys to Holcomb.
