WASHINGTON (AP) – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says Vice President-elect Mike Pence will be a “valued player” on Capitol Hill.

Pence met with Pelosi and other House leaders Thursday. The former Indiana congressman says they discussed areas where they could work together, and that he and president-elect Donald Trump are “working briskly” on the transition.

Pelosi says Pence will be valued in Congress because he “knows the territory.” She says they talked about infrastructure and child care.

She says Democrats will try to find common ground where they can, and stand their ground when they can.

A spokesman says Pelosi also has “deep concerns” about the appointment of conservative publisher Steve Bannon as a top White House adviser.
