UPDATE: A spokesman for former Vice President Mike Pence says he has not filed paperwork to run for the White House. The original report came from the Washington Examiner and Sky News.
“It’s not clear who filed the paperwork on Pence’s behalf, with the former vice president’s spokesperson suggesting it may have been a prank, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. The Washington Examiner has reached out to O’Malley for further comment but has not yet received a response,” the Examiner reported.
Pence was asked about running for president last month. He told ABC News anchor David Muir he is considering it.
“We’re giving it consideration in our house. Prayerful consideration,” Pence said during an interview on ABC’s World News Tonight.
DEVELOPING STORY: Former Vice President Mike Pence has filed papers indicating his intention to run for the presidency in 2024, the Washington Examiner reported.
It sets up what could be a fiery clash between Pence and his former boss, Donald Trump.
Pence, a strong favorite among evangelical Christians, could siphon off a significant number of Trump’s evangelical base. In recent days, Trump has drawn fire from evangelicals for his support of the LGBT movement.
Pence and Trump are just the first two of what are expected to be many candidates in the Republican primary.
