The decision to bring in Pence was not without controversy.
Pence continues to face criticism over a bungled response to an HIV outbreak in IN while he was the state's governor.
"I think the data speaks for itself, that it's decreasing the transmission of infectious diseases", she said. "I mean if the president hadn't taken those unprecedented steps we'd be in a very different place today, Sean".
