Speculation that former Vice President Mike Pence will run for the U.S. presidency in 2024 is growing.
A new report from Breitbart indicates that Pence is going to be the keynote speaker at a Republican Party fundraiser that will be held in New Hampshire in June.
New Hampshire, of course, is the state where America’s first presidential primary takes place.
The fundraiser that Pence will speak at is the Lincoln Reagan awards dinner that is held annually by the Hillsborough County Republicans. This year, that event will take place on June 3rd in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The news that Pence will be the keynote speaker was recently confirmed by Chris Ager, the chair of the Hillsborough County Republicans and a member of the Republican National Committee (RNC).
“We are very excited to have the vice president as our keynote speaker,” Ager said.
Pence has slowly been getting back into the spotlight now that Joe Biden has been president for 100 days. Pence, according to Devin O’Malley, one of his former top aides, has stayed silent in order to abide by the “customary time of silence” afforded to a new administration.
Pence, last week, gave his first speech since leaving the White House in January. It took place at the Palmetto Family Council Dinner that was just held in South Carolina. There, Pence talked about uniting the conservatism of former President Donald Trump with the more traditional conservative principles.
“It is time to unite behind a positive agenda, built upon our highest ideals to win back America,” Pence said. “We have the winning agenda. I have no doubt about it, built on American values and on our confidence in the American people.”
Pence said that this agenda includes the one “just implemented in four years of the Trump-Pence administration,” which he said was “built on a strong national defense, secure borders, free-market economics, trade deals that put America first” as well as on “conservative judges” and “upholding all of the God given liberties enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America.”
Pence has many more speeches coming up, now that the “customary time of silence” is over.
Pence is also expected to play a big role in helping Republicans to win the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
