Former Vice President Mike Pence has announced the launch of his new political advocacy group, Advancing American Freedom. The conservative political group is designed to help defend conservative values as well as provide an avenue for Pence to remain involved in conservative politics while he mulls his next move.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Advancing American Freedom plans to build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump administration,” Pence said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
“Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest nation in the world with their destructive policies,” Pence said.
The new group will be headquartered in Washington, D.C. Its programs will be developed around three pillars: American strength and security, covering immigration, Israel and Middle East peace, and “standing firm against adversaries”; American prosperity, including rebuilding the economy, energy independence, the administration’s tax cuts, and deregulation; and American liberty, including anti-abortion, school choice, and religious liberty issues.
Former President Trump even gave a “thumbs up” to Pence for creating the group and continuing their work from the past four years.
“It was the most successful first term in American history,” he said in a statement sent to the Washington Examiner. “Nice to see Mike highlighting some of our many achievements!”
The advisory board for Advancing American Freedom will be made up of multiple Trump administration officials such as Kellyanne Conway and Larry Kudlow.
