Anyone not named Trump or DeSantis has absolutely no shot in 2024. Politico is reporting, though, that former Vice President Mike Pence will announce his candidacy on June 7 in Des Moines, Iowa. We only wonder if Team Trump will even bother to stop trashing Ron DeSantis long enough to even take a shot at Pence. We can’t recall a single thing Pence did in his four years that would indicate he’s a serious candidate.

Donald Trump is burning a ton of bridges, so it’s not like we’re looking at a possible Trump/Pence ticket again. So why?
Oh man, Trump is totally going to win the nomination and most likely gift the presidency and the House to the Dems. Love this.

Just a hunch but I don't think he can win.

Absolute waste of time. ZERO chance.

If the replies to Politico’s post are anything to go by, Pence is best remembered for the fly that landed on his head during the debate.

Honestly, what is his path? MAGA hates him because of Jan 6th. He’s too extreme for Indy’s. Really don’t get where he thinks he has a path here.

As we asked with Chris Christie, will the True Conservatives™ rally around Pence? He’s got no chance with Democrats or the MAGA crowd. It certainly would be awkward to see Pence and Trump on a debate stage together.
