Pence says GOP will 'absolutely' accept outcome of election

WASHINGTON (AP) - GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence says he and Donald Trump "will absolutely accept the results of the election" and "the will of the American people" on Nov. 8.
    
Pence tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that the country has a tradition of "the peaceful transfer of power." But the Indiana governor says "elections always get pretty rough" and he expects that's how it'll be right up until Election Day.
    
And Pence is pledging that over the final weeks of the campaign, "we're going to work our hearts out against all odds."
    
Pence also is accusing the media of having an "obvious bias." He says that bias is what's behind Trump's claims of "a rigged election."
