EXCLUSIVE – Former Vice President Mike Pence, a likely 2024 Republican White House contender, is returning next week to South Carolina, the state that holds the third contest in the GOP presidential nominating calendar.
Pence heads to Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday, March 2 to headline a law enforcement roundtable, Fox News has learned. Pence’s ninth trip to the Palmetto State since he left office over two years ago comes amid renewed efforts by Congress to pass police reform legislation after five police officers in Memphis, Tennessee were accused of killing 29-year-old Black man Tyre Nichols last month.
The former vice president will meet with South Carolina sheriffs and police officers from various municipalities in order to "push back on the restored 'Defund the Police' movement that's sweeping across the country," a Pence aide said.
The roundtable discussion was originally scheduled for Feb. 6, but Pence postponed the trip after his daughter Charlotte Pence Bond went into labor in California. The former vice president and former second lady Karen Pence traveled to be by their daughter’s side for the birth of their second grandchild.

Yeah, he’s HOT all right!
I’ll stay home and watch paint dry before I ever vote for Pence.
Pence is low energy.
Forgot about Iowa, Mike, give em the heater in South Carolina.
America isn’t going to elect this milquetoast.
The idea of Pence gaining traction in the 2024 POTUS race is a joke.
As Drew68 (not a Trump supporter himself!) has pointed out, all these one-percenters like Pence, Haley, Larry “Bulk” Hogan, Bolton, etc. work to President Trump’s advantage.
Pence: 2024’s answer to Jeb Bush!
Trump is going to pick him again.
Trump should demand DeSantis, Pence and Haley join him in East Palestine.
Please Sir....Please know...
I will vote for Nacy Pelosi before I vote for you, treasonous POS.

He sucked as a governor and I wont let him run this country.
Was he a milk toast governor?
