Pence to host GOP dinner fuels 2024 election speculation after VP teases he'll have 'more to say' in coming months

FORMER Vice President Mike Pence is set to visit the Hillsborough County GOP’s annual Lincoln Reagan awards dinner in New Hampshire on June 3.

The event entails a Republican Party fundraising and dinner in New Hampshire, the nation’s first presidential primary state since the 2020 election campaign.

New Hampshire GOP chairman Stephen Stepanek expressed his thrill about Pence’s visit, saying “Obviously it telegraphs that he may have interest as 2024 approaches,” referring to the 2024 presidential race. 

Stepanek said that Pence has supporters in New Hampshire, , according to NBC-affiliate NECN.

 Pence traveled to South Carolina to deliver his first speech since the end of Donald Trump’s administration on January 20, according to Fox News.

"We've got to guard our values … by offering a positive agenda to the American people, grounded in our highest ideals," he said in his speech. "Over the coming months, I'll have more to say about all of that."

The former Vice President said that he will “push back on the liberal agenda” of President Joe Biden administration that he claims is wrong for the country, according to NECN.

Pence has not revealed if he plans to run for the next presidential election, but his team said that he is planning more trips to visit Texas, Michigan, and California.

In April,  Pence has glossed over Donald Trump’s Vice President snub during his first speech since leaving office and slammed Joe Biden’s “radical” first 100 days.

The former Vice President, 61, failed to address the apparent snub paid by Donald Trump after he named Ron DeSantis as a possible vice president in the 2024 race.

Trump suggested that he would run alongside the Florida Governor in a third run during an interview with Fox Business on Thursday.

He was then asked if he would considering running alongside DeSantis, who Trump has always had a good relationship with.

"Certainly," he confirmed. "Ron would be considered. He's a great guy."

He set out a right-wing, Republican set of policies that he claimed would “win back America,” potentially positioning himself as a presidential candidate for 2024.
