“We’re getting closer. We’re getting a lot of encouragement,” Pence said.
“I’ll be back in Iowa next week. I’ll be in California. Look, I think this country is in a lot of trouble," he continued.
"When I think about the way the Lord has blessed my family to be a leader in the Congress, to be a governor of a successful state, to be a Vice President in a consequential conservative administration, my wife and I are continuing to reflect and pray about what our role might be, but I expect we’ll have a clearer idea and you’ll have a clearer idea in weeks, not months," Pence added.
Former United States Vice President Mike Pence said he will announce a decision on whether he will run for president in 2024 within the next month or so.

He did not specify an exact date or time he plans on making his decision, according to the Crimson White.

The comments also come as Pence has recently said he wants to leave the decision to voters on whether former President Donald Trump should be disqualified from running in 2024.
"At the end of the day, I'd rather we leave these decisions to voters," he responded during a Fox News interview earlier this month.
Weak response 2020 election
Trump has blamed Pence for a weak response to 2020 election problems. Pence argues that he was doing his job.
The coming weeks are likely to reveal the final decisions by Pence and several other GOP candidates considering a run against the former president for the 2024 campaign.
