As the nation continues to march forward toward the 2024 election and all of the enormous questions it poses while looming over the horizon, there is a great deal of speculation as to what could be coming down the line for the GOP.
The Democrats are certainly doing their damnedest to poison the well of Donald Trump’s potential candidacy, and there are some concerns about investigations in New York City as well. And so the posturing has already begun response to the potential power vacuum.
In Florida, it is hard to deny that Governor Ron DeSantis is raising his national profile, and he’s been coy in the past about a potential run.
But now we also have Trump own Vice President, Mike Pence, beginning to speak rather presidentially.
During a sit-down interview with Fox News Digital on the sidelines of a speech on economic policy at the University Club in Chicago, Pence reflected on the current state of the nation under the Biden administration, telling Fox News that President Biden is “embracing the politics of the radical left.”Trending:
“At a time when we have inflation at a 40-year-high, gasoline prices more than doubled since we left office, a crisis at our southern border, war in Eastern Europe, a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, maybe this just comes from living back in Indiana again, but, those are the things I’m focused on, and frankly, those are the things people talk to me about everywhere,” Pence said. “The issues that are bearing upon the American people are, as is often the case, not what Washington is focused on.”
Then, on the subject of January 6th:
“Jan. 6 was a tragic day, and I know we did our duty, but I will always be proud of our record,” Pence told Fox News. “And I am not going to allow the Democrats to use that tragic day to distract attention from their failed agenda or to demean the intentions of 74 million Americans who rallied behind our cause.”
Pence has repeatedly suggested that he will go “where he’s called” in regard to 2024, having remained a bit innocuous about the whole thing.
