Former Vice resident Mike Pence has added another major Republican event to his agenda while sparking further speculation of a White House bid.
Pence is set to headline the GOP’s Lincoln Dinner in New Hampshire as the keynote speaker in June. Many believe he’s laying out the groundwork for a 2024 presidential run as he slowly reenters the political arena.
Pence recently took the stage at a GOP fundraiser in South Carolina in his first public appearance since leaving office, where he criticized the Biden administration.
“After 100 days, I think the time has come for Americans devoted to faith and family and freedom and limited government to stand up and unite behind a positive agenda,” he stated. “And win back America, and it starts right here and right now.”
In just 100 days the Biden-Harris administration has launched an avalanche of liberal policies that will derail all the progress we made on security, prosperity and values!
