Sara Haines said Tuesday that sending Vice President Mike Pence home would be a punishment to Indiana.
Haines joined her cohosts on ABC’s “The View” to discuss whether or not Pence would stand with President Donald Trump in his efforts to challenge the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Sunny Hostin said that she didn’t think that Pence was worried about Trump’s future so much as his own, saying that she believed he was conserving his strength and political capital for his own potential presidential run in 2024.
“I don’t think vice president Mike Pence should run for any leadership role ever again,” Hostin continued. “Let’s remember he was the leader of the Coronavirus Task Force. To date I think we have over 300,000 Americans dead. Where has Vice President Mike Pence been as the leader of the Coronavirus Task Force? He’s been woefully deficient in leading the country in that effort.”
Hostin went on to say that Pence had not done a good job in orchestrating the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine either, adding, “I would like to see him go back to Indiana and never lead anything ever again.”
“Let’s not do that to Indiana, Sunny,” Haines shot back with a laugh.
