Vice President-elect Mike Pence is taking over White House transition efforts from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a senior campaign aide confirmed to Fox News.

The Wall Street Journal and New York Times first reported Friday that Pence will take command of the operation leading Donald Trump’s transition to power.
