Former Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to headline the Hillsborough County Republican Committee’s Lincoln-Reagan Awards dinner next month.
New Hampshire Republicans have expressed their excitement over Pence’s upcoming visit, saying it sparks further speculation of a 2024 presidential bid. In a recent interview, the state’s GOP Chair Steve Stepanek (R-N.H.) expressed Pence has a lot of supporters in the state.
Pence spoke in South Carolina earlier this month, making this his first public address since leaving office. “We have to guard our values and offer a positive agenda to the American people,” said the former vice president.
Pence has not said whether he’ll run for president in 2024. However, his team has indicated he has more trips on his agenda that so far include visits to Texas, California and Michigan.
