Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence makes a final appeal for support as he casts his ballot in the U.S. presidential election at his home precinct in Indianapolis, Indiana. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence and his wife went to their home precinct in Indianapolis, Indiana to cast their ballots for president on Tuesday (November 8). It was the culmination of a grueling final week of campaigning that had the Indiana governor criss-crossing the country, tring to close the gap between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. A Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation poll gave Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump and said she was on track to win 303 electoral college votes out of 270 needed. Democrats also are seeking to break the Republican lock on control of the U.S. Congress. A strong turnout of voters for Clinton could jeopardize Republican control of the Senate, as voters choose 34 senators of the 100-member chamber on Tuesday. Democrats needed a net gain of five seats to win control. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives were being contested. The House was expected to remain in Republican hands.
