Seems Like Pence Isn’t Afraid to Run Against Trump in 2024

Former Vice President Mike Pence has signaled he’s running for president in 2024 — even if that means going up against his former boss.

SO WHAT

Former President Trump, despite being the presumptive frontrunner, does not appear to be clearing the field.

WHAT HAPPENED

In The Atlantic magazine Tuesday, Pence’s former chief of staff, Marc Short, strongly hinted the ex-veep plans to run whether or not Trump does too.

“If you know the Pences, you know they’ll always try to discern where they’re being called to serve,” Short said. “And I don’t think that is dependent on who else is in or not in the race.”

MORE GOP JOSTLING

Pence isn’t the only erstwhile Trump acolyte whom the former president has to worry about in 2024.

  • Trump is reportedly annoyed that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won’t publicly promise not to challenge him.
  • Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last month said he would be willing to run against Trump — and any Republican who couldn’t say the same shouldn’t be president.

SAME ENERGY

When then-Vice President Thomas Jefferson successfully challenged then-President John Adams in the election of 1800 it nearly tore the country apart, according to historian Ed Larson.
