There has been plenty of speculation about Donald Trump and Mike Pence. People have wondered about their relationship, after the momentous events of January 6.
Some think Pence is on the outs with the 45th president. As rumors swirl about Trump’s possible 2024 run, word is he’s considering other running mates.
Others seem to think Pence is preparing for his own 2024 run.
But Pence seems to be far from becoming a Trump hater, not by a longshot. Because his latest announcement is all about defending and preserving Trump’s legacy.
From Washington Examiner:
Former Vice President Mike Pence will take a step back into public life and a possible 2024 run with the launch Wednesday of the Advancing American Freedom advocacy group, designed to merge traditional conservative thinking with Trumpism…
“Advancing American Freedom plans to build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump administration,” Pence said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
Mike Pence has launched a conservative advocacy group called Advancing American Freedom.
According to reports, the group’s focus will be on promoting conservative values as well as the kind of America-first policies common with the Trump administration.
Familiar names will be part of the group’s board, including Kellyanne Conway and Larry Kudlow.
President Trump himself offered some words of support for the group. He said, “Nice to see Mike highlighting some of our many achievements!”
Through this group, Pence will continue to be in the public eye, defending and endorsing conservative values. This might lend weight to the speculation that he will run for office in 2024.
This group isn’t specifically a “Trump PAC.” The focus, after all, isn’t to get Trump re-elected (for now), but to endorse and promote MAGA-focused policies typical of the Trump administration.
Which, of course, Pence was a big part of. Could this new group be a stepping stone for Pence to seek the White House?
It’s possible. If the man wanted to run for president, this would be a good move to make right now. He can stay visible, defending conservative policies while opposing the Biden administration.
That would set him up well for 2024, as people will have seen him in action over the next four years.
But this also can help Trump run again, as this group will preserve the values Trump supporters want.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
If you had to choose today, would you want Trump or Pence to be your 2024 nominee—or someone new?
- Mike Pence has launched a new conservative group called Advancing American Freedom.
- The group will advocate for conservative values and America-first policies.
- The new move could be a stepping stone for Pence if he runs in 2024.
