Mike Pence Announces Presidential Candidacy

On Wednesday, Mike Pence officially announced his run for President in 2024. He is one of only a few VPs to run against their former boss in the same race. He held a town hall which was broadcast on CNN last night in which he offered sharp comparisons to his opponent Donald Trump. He disagreed with the former President about several key issues including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Pence recently testified before a grand jury regarding the events of Jan. 6, which included Trump’s request for Pence to deny the election results. On that day, there were calls from the rioters to “hang Mike Pence”.
