Why would he be asked this exact question?

Well essentially because he won the Nobel Prize for coming up with the current mathematical explanation of the electromagnetic force, and this has turn out to be one of the most precise models in the history of physics, agreeing with all acknowledged experiments to an unbelievable degree of correctness.
