Mike Pence’s Expected announcement for presidential bid in 2024

According to a person familiar with the campaign, former vice president Mike Pence intends to launch his presidential bid on June 7 at a gathering in Des Moines.

With many visits to early voting states including New Hampshire and Iowa and the introduction of a super PAC backing his campaign, Pence has been teasing his ambitions for several months. Pence will compete against former President Trump, who is the front-runner for the GOP nomination, and at least nine other Republicans.

In recent weeks, Pence has offered a preview of a campaign that would be centered on bringing the Republican party back to its core values, which include promoting free markets, being fiscally responsible, standing up for American friends overseas, and small government. He has also used his own faith and family values to make more incisive assaults on Trump, his former campaign partner, while pledging to uphold the constitution.

Trump’s former right-hand teased in recent months that he was considering running for office.

“We’re giving it consideration in our house. Prayerful consideration,” he recently said.

According to reports, Pence has been putting together his campaign staff in the run-up to the announcement.

Pence claimed that his motivation for running for president ultimately comes down to a desire to serve. He asserted that he and Trump’s policies of a strong military, conservative judges, backing for allies, and standing up to adversaries are what the public wants to return to.

“But I think they long for leadership that could unite our country around our highest ideals and demonstrate the kind of respect and civility that the American people show each other every day,” Pence told Inskeep. “You know, our politics is very divided right now, maybe more than any time in my lifetime. But you know, moving back to Indiana, shopping at the grocery store, going to the gas station, being back around family and friends, traveling the country, I’m not convinced that the American people are as divided as our politics.”
