A Republican has entered the race for the White House Mike Pence. Today he submitted the necessary documents to the Federal Election Commission. His opponents in the Republican primaries will be among others Donald Trumpto which Pence was doing vice presidentor Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis. Pence is profiled as a traditional conservative and a counterweight to the populist current in the Republican Party, he is a supporter of Ukraine and an opponent of, for example, the right to abortion.
According to the media, the 48th US Vice President Pence will officially start the campaign before the voters on his 64th birthday on Wednesday, June 7, with a speech in the city of Des Moines, Iowa; will also release a campaign video, following the lead of other White House contenders.
People familiar with Pence’s plans say the freshman Republican nominee and native of nearby Indiana sees Iowa and the broader American Midwest as home for his type of politics. Pence describes himself as “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.” He spent months preparing for the campaign, including holding events in Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire, where he visited churches, gave speeches and sought sponsors, according to media reports.
The Pence campaign will now seek to make the former vice president register with voters as something other than a Trump aide. The final weeks of the Trump and Pence administrations were characterized by Trump’s denial of the election results, culminating in violent riots at the Capitol building in January 2021. Pence testified before a federal grand jury in April of this year in the case of Trump’s alleged influence on the election result and inciting violence at the Capitol.
“At another point in our modern political history, Pence would have been a candidate aspiring to succeed with the Iowa caucuses. But in the post-Trump era, the situation is different, Pence will be viewed and judged through the lens of Trump,” Dave Kochel, a Republican political strategist in Iowa, told Politico.
Before becoming US Vice President in 2016, Pence was the governor of Indiana and a member of Congress for more than a decade.
Candidates for the White House, who run for one of the two main political parties, must first win the favor of their fellow parties in the so-called primary elections. The Democratic and Republican parties will each put up one candidate, among whom the people will choose the president in an election through voters.
In addition to the two most prominent people of Trump and DeSantis, Penec’s opponents in the Republican primaries will also include the former governor of South Carolina and the US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haleyex-governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson and several other candidates.
