Mike Pence suspends his struggling 2024 campaign
Vice President Mike Pence has decided to temporarily suspend his struggling 2024 presidential campaign.
Pence’s move comes after he faced significant backlash for his low fundraising totals and poor public approval ratings. He was also eclipsed in early polls by other potential Republican presidential candidates, including former President Donald Trump.
In a statement on his website, Pence said that he was “temporarily suspending” his campaign in order to focus on “assisting President Trump’s successful re-election in 2020.” He also said that he believes “the best way for me to serve our great country is through a renewed focus on helping the President win his re-election this year.”
Pence has faced a number of setbacks over the past few months, making it increasingly difficult for him to keep up with other potential contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. While the decision to temporarily suspend his campaign is not definitive, it appears that Pence is acknowledging the realities of his situation and waiting for a more opportune moment to launch a full-fledged campaign.
