    Mike "Race Bannon" Pence Hangs Up His Presidential Campaign

    cnn.com



    Former Vice President Mike Pence has suspended his campaign for president amid lagging poll numbers and financial challenges.

    He announced the suspension while speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual conference in Las Vegas on Saturday.

    Pence’s theory of his candidacy was simple – he broke from then-President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021, and refocused on the core conservative principles that founded the modern Republican Party with Ronald Reagan, his political beacon.

    Pence returned to that idea throughout his White House bid, from campaign signs intentionally harkening back to Reagan’s 1984 campaign to speeches urging his party to turn away from populism.

    His exit from the 2024 race shows today’s GOP has long left that kind of conservatism he represents, reshaped by Trump, who continues to be the dominant candidate in the race, despite his legal troubles.

    Pence, who was Indiana governor and a US congressman before being vice president, announced his campaign in early June. He chose to launch his campaign in Iowa, rather than his home state of Indiana, an indication of how much importance he was placing on the early voting state.

    He attempted to visit all of Iowa’s 99 counties, focusing on face-to-face interactions in intimate settings. The Midwestern native leaned on his faith and courted fellow conservative evangelicals, a crucial voting bloc in the state.

    So fucking mental that you would stand for a party where a significant number of it's key people literally wanted to lynch you and actually raised a mob to do it.

    If this was a movie Pence would be a howling plot hole at this point...

      Pence provided an establishment aspect and far right conservative elements that Trump needed to in order to draw ultra-conservatives into his Republican ticket... On his own, Pence doesn't draw much interest among moderates and independents. That's where the bulk of the nation is...

      I can't stand to listen to him... "Let me share a little story, while bore you to death..."

        Pence like most VP’s was just there. Pence is about as exciting as puffed rice cakes.
        No! You can't have the keys to the wine cellar!
