Mike Pence Directly Addresses 2024 Presidential Run

Linkedin Share

Former President Donald Trump’s early announcement, in which he confirmed his plans to run for reelection in 2024, was originally believed to be a tactic that would produce some severe hesitation among his potential competition, but this has not exactly been the case.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, for instance, has infuriated Trump with unwillingness to go on record regarding the possibility of a ’24 run…all while courting Republican mega-donors out in the wilds of Utah.

Then there’s Mike Pompeo and Nikki Haley, who both made overt references to their own interest in testing the presidential waters during a recent conference.

And we can’t forget Trump’s own Vice President Mike Pence, who has now addressed the possibility of his own run rather directly.

Former Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart News that GOP candidates focused on the future and solving the problems voters face today “did quite well” in the midterm election. He also said he and his family will give “prayerful consideration” over the holidays to whether he intends to run for president in 2024.

Pence, who is promoting his new book So Help Me God, started by congratulating Republicans on retaking the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“A win is a win. I was in Congress the last time that we defeated a Democrat majority led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the day that Pelosi hands the gavel to Speaker Kevin McCarthy is going to be a great day for America and an opportunity for us to start our way back to the policies that the Trump-Pence administration proved make our country secure and prosperous and ensures the vitality of our liberties,” Pence said. “I welcome that, and I celebrate the election of a Republican majority in the House of Representatives without qualification.”

Then came the ’24 talk:

As for his own future, Pence did say he is considering a run for the White House himself—but regardless of what he decides, he will be fighting for the policies and values of the conservative movement he has spent his life in.

“In terms of our role, I can tell you we are going to give prayerful consideration to what role we might play in the months and years ahead as we gather over the Christmas holidays but whether I’m a candidate for president or whether I’m championing another candidate I promise you I’ll never stop fighting for the conservative policies and values that have defined my public life since the very start,” Pence said.

This isn’t the first time that Pence has mentioned the idea of running for President, but it certainly is one of the most succinct instances of this sort of conversation thus far.
