Donald Trump, as things stand now, would be tough to beat in the GOP primaries of 2024. The one man who has the best shot? The veep who he betrayed. Mike Pence.

While Pence was defending the Constitution and protecting America on January 6th, Trump was telling slobbering rioters that Pence lacked courage. It was Pence, not Trump, who showed true courage in defying the Trump mob and doing his duty. Real conservatives and Republicans know that. That holds Pence in good standing, even with some Trump supporters. Hence the hero veep’s scheduled trip to New Hampshire.

FNC: “In a move that will spark further 2024 speculation, former Vice President Mike Pence will headline a major Republican Party dinner and fundraising event in early June in New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary in the race for the White House. Fox News was first to report this past week that Pence will headline the Hillsborough County GOP’s annual Lincoln Reagan awards dinner on June 3 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Days before the news broke, Pence traveled to South Carolina, the state that votes third in the GOP’s nominating calendar and holds the first southern contest in the presidential primaries, to give his first address since the end of Donald Trump’s administration on Jan. 20.”

“We’ve got to guard our values … by offering a positive agenda to the American people, grounded in our highest ideals,” Pence said in a recent speech. “Over the coming months, I’ll have more to say about all of that. Pence will be “pushing back on the liberal agenda” of the Biden administration. Pence isn’t the only presidential hopeful who will be testing the waters in New Hampshire and around the country.

As for Trump, he recently told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo that he’s “100% thinking about running again.” Trump also told Candace Owens that “it’s very early. But I think people are going to be very, very happy when I make a certain announcement…You know, for campaign finance reasons, you really can’t do it too early because it becomes a whole different thing… Otherwise I think I’d give you an answer that you’d be very happy with. So we’re looking at that very, very seriously. All I’d say is stay tuned.”
