Former Vice President Mike Pence is slated to ship a speech on the Hillsborough County GOP’s annual Lincoln-Reagan Awards Dinner in New Hampshire on Thursday, sparking additional hypothesis of a possible 2024 presidential bid.
New Hampshire’s standing because the state kicking off the primaries throughout election season furthers the suspicions, as many marvel if the previous vice chairman plans to toss his hat into the presidential ring in 2024.
“Hillsborough Republicans are able to welcome Vice President Pence again to the Granite State,” State Republican Nationwide Committeeman Chris Ager mentioned in an announcement.
Based on the NHJournal, “Ager says the Hillsborough GOP has bought extra tickets for this occasion than ever earlier than, and the top-dollar VIP reception tickets fully bought out”:
The New Hampshire go to marks Pence’s second journey to an early presidential main state this yr. In April, Pence visited South Carolina the place he toured a medical faculty and gave an handle to the Palmetto Household Council, a Christian conservative nonprofit. In his speech, the previous vice chairman excoriated President Joe Biden and touted the accomplishments of the Trump years.
Whereas Pence has not outlined any concrete plans to run for president in 2024, he has discovered himself within the high tier of candidates in some hypothetical GOP main polls in current months.
“Trump voters will give Mike Pence plenty of credit score for being a loyal — a really, very loyal — vice chairman,” a veteran GOP strategist informed NHJournal. “However clearly on January 6, the president’s opinion of him modified.”
