    Former Vice President Mike Pence, a Republican, will announce he is running for president in 2024 at a rally-style event in Des Moines, Iowa, next Wednesday, a source familiar with Pence’s plans told Breitbart News. Pence, who served alongside former President Donald Trump for four years, will face off against his old running mate and other Republicans like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is also expected to enter the race next week.
  • Breaking! Gov. Ron DeSantis Quietly Changes Twitter Handle, Drops “FL” Ahead of Reported Presidential Bid Announcement This Week

    Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has come under fire after making changes to his personal Twitter account in preparation for a reported presidential bid announcement this week. Previously known on Twitter as @GovRonDeSantisFL, the governor’s new handle now reads @GovRonDeSantis. The decision to drop the “FL” from his handle has been interpreted by some as an act of distancing himself from the state that propelled him into the national spotlight. Critics argue that by removing the “FL,” DeSantis is effectively signaling that he views Florida as a means to an end and has little intention of continuing his service as governor...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis Uses Journalists to Shoot His People in the BackArchbishop Giacomo Morandi told local media on April 27 how Francis appointed him to Reggio Emilia-Guastalla, Italy.Morandi was secretary of the CDF and one of Francis' sycophants, but Francis began to hate him for his cautious opposition to homosex “blessings” and the rigid Traditionis Custodes.Francis who doesn't tolerate dissent, decided to get rid of him. But when he called Morandi in December 2021 to inform him of his transfer to Reggio, Morandi had already read about it in the Gazzetta di Reggio, a local newspaper.This is how Francis works:...

    DOYLESTOWN, Pennsylvania—Richard Tems was about as loyal a Trump supporter as you can get. The Bucks County businessman and GOP committeeman has fiercely defended former President Donald Trump in editorials, interviews with reporters, and conversations with anyone within earshot. He voted for Trump twice and believed he was the right president at the right time. However, eight years after the New York businessman and entertainer came down the escalator in Trump Tower in June 2015, Tems said he would move on in next year’s Pennsylvania primary. He plans to vote instead for Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., for the Republican nomination...

    Governor DeSantis said the Republican Party “needs to shake a culture of losing that has developed in recent years,” because in “in times like these, there is no substitute for victory.” “As I look ahead to 2024, I believe if the Democrats are able to sweep the offices again… they will pack the U.S. Supreme Court, abolish the Electoral College and make Washington, D.C. a state and eliminate voter ID in every jurisdiction,” he said. DeSantis said his reelection win in 2022 showed that voters supported his leadership during the pandemic. Leadership “is about delivering results,” he said, adding that...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday took aim at former President Donald Trump and other potential GOP presidential candidates as he laid out his vision for 2024 to Republican donors. Pence, in remarks at the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) spring donor retreat in Nashville, Tenn., argued that the party could not afford to remain fixated on the past or follow a cult of personality at the expense of policy — a clear swipe at Trump as the former vice president weighs whether to challenge his old boss for the 2024 nomination. “We need leaders with the courage to speak...
  • Bill Barr says Democrats are intentionally emboldening Trump's base with indictment to ensure he's the 2024 GOP nominee 'because he is the weakest of the Republican candidates'

    Bill Barr said Democrats' goal is to use the judicial system to get involved with the Republican primary and ensure that former President Donald Trump wins because they think they can beat him again in 2024. Trump's former Attorney General said Sunday morning that the recent indictment against the former president and the many other legal battles are a calculated effort by progressives to embolden the MAGA base. A grand jury in Manhattan moved late last month to charge Trump in the Stormy Daniels hush money payment case – making him the first-ever president to face indictment. Last week, the...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said in a written statement on Tuesday that Manhattan prosecutor Alvin Bragg is setting a “dangerous precedent” by criminalizing a political opponent. Romney, who is no fan of Trump, said in reaction to the indictment of Trump: I believe President Trump’s character and conduct make him unfit for office. Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda. No one is above the law, not even former presidents, but everyone is entitled to equal treatment under the law. The prosecutor’s overreach sets a...

    Michael Cohen has warned that Donald Trump may be looking to stir up controversy and a "violent clash" after revealing that he expects an arrest ahead of a potential indictment. "Donald’s post is eerily similar to his battle cry prior to the January 6th insurrection; including calling for protest," Cohen told The New York Post Saturday. "By doing so, Donald is hoping to rile his base, witness another violent clash on his behalf and profit from it by soliciting contributions." Trump posted on Truth Social that he expects an arrest in Manhattan on Tuesday as the District Attorney’s Office seeks...

    In a speech Saturday night, former vice president Mike Pence delivered what amounted to his strongest rebuke of Donald Trump, criticizing the former president for his role in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 attack on the United States Capitol as well as attempts to rewrite the history of that day. “President Trump was wrong,” Pence said. “I had no right to overturn the election. And his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day. And I know that history will hold Donald Trump accountable.” The former vice president was speaking at the Gridiron dinner, a...

CNN reported that a source familiar with the filing claimed Pence filed the motion on the basis that the U.S. Constitution’s Speech or Debate clause protects him from providing testimony related to Jan. 6.

    Mike Pompeo is openly casting doubt on the conservative bonafides of his one-time boss, former President Donald Trump, ahead of a potential face-off in 2024. During an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Pompeo talked about how a conservative president is needed to tackle the nation’s budget deficit and debt after years of neglect, including during the Trump administration. Anchor Shannon Bream then asked Pompeo if he was saying Trump was not a “true conservative leader,” using her guest’s words to describe the kind of president he argued is necessary to attain fiscal responsibility. Fox's Shannon Bream: "Are you saying that...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he would prefer a Republican alternative to former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election, while floating reforms to popular entitlement programs as he mulls his own possible White House run. "I think we're going to have better choices" than Trump, Pence said on CNBC's "Squawk Box" when asked if the GOP should nominate someone other than the former president next year. Pence did not explicitly rule out supporting Trump if he became the GOP nominee. The ex-vice president, who served under Trump in the White House for four years, also appeared...

    Failed presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told reporters on Wednesday that former President Donald Trump will likely be the Republican nominee in 2024, and the potential wide field of candidates will only improve his chances. “I think President Trump is by far the most likely to become our nominee,” he said in the Capitol. “If there’s an alternative to that, it would be only realistic if it narrows down to a two-person race at some point.” Romney’s comment came the day after former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley launched her 2024 presidential campaign, joining Trump. The field is expected to...

    Governor Ron DeSantis is actively preparing a run for president in 2024, even as he delays a formal announcement to keep Republican voters’ attention on his aggressively conservative record in Florida, according to people familiar with the plans. Behind the scenes, DeSantis and his tight-knit team of advisers are interviewing national consultants to work on a presidential campaign. A retreat for roughly 150 donors, GOP leaders and lawmakers is planned for the final weekend in February at a hotel in Palm Beach, where DeSantis will tout his record as governor. Aides are speaking to and vetting operatives in early states...
