Pompeo Fuels 2024 Rumors After Being Announced as Headliner for Major GOP Fundraiser


Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is adding fuel to the fire over his possible 2024 presidential run after being announced as the headliner for a major GOP fundraiser in South Carolina. On Tuesday, South Carolina GOP Chair Drew McKissick announced Pompeo will headline the Silver Elephant fundraising gala next month.

The Hill reports:

“Secretary Pompeo is an excellent champion for our conservative cause, and has proven that here at home and on the world stage,” said McKissick. “We look forward to welcoming him to the Palmetto State, hearing his story, and celebrating past and future Republican successes.”

Pompeo, who helmed the State Department and the CIA during the Trump administration, has widely been viewed as a potential contender in 2024. Since leaving office, he’s looked to maintain his high profile in GOP circles, including by launching a political group in June to boost Republicans in the midterms.

The Silver Elephant gala is often headlined by lawmakers who are looking to lay out a path for the White House, including then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan, former Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas).

Speculation over Pompeo’s future ambitions have amplified as he travels to other early voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire, which hold the first two contests in the nominating race.

Pompeo has remained tight-lipped over his possible plans to launch a presidential campaign. Sources close to Pompeo have indicated that if Trump decided to run again Pompeo will not challenge him.

I think Pompeo would be a viable candidate. Although I don’t think he would beat out President Trump or De Santis . But Pompeo is a formidable opponent.

Of all the Trump Cabinet members, Pompeo stood out as both a formidable conservative and an excellent public servant! But if Trump runs, I think that Pompeo would be almost unbeatable as the VP running mate! DeSantis needs to be re-elected next year as FL Governor; and beyond that, his political future is bright, indeed! We certainly have a strong “bench,” if you ask me!! And, need I add, thank God for that!!

Pompeo and DeSantis are good conservatives and would be good presidents but nobody fights for America like Donald Trump. China and Iran and all of our dangerous enemies fear Trump and he knows how to get an economy rolling and jobs.

Just knowing that the South Carolina Elite Republicans are promoting a Candidate is reason enough not to support them or vote for them! We have nothing but RINOS in South Carolina!

I wouldn’t trust anyone the GOP elite are putting forth as a potential candidate…most turned on President Trump and American people in January. Career politicians, NO thanks!

I want Pompeo on Team Trump in 2024 and we could have him run for President in 2028.

The republican party is already split between conservatives and RINOs and so now we will have even more of a divide between President Trump and Mike Pompeo. “A house divided cannot stand” and a divided political party will be weak and easy to beat. The democrats are united and usually support each other irrespective of their differences and so they are a very solid strong political party and not easy to beat. The republicans need to learn a lesson from the democrats and be nice and supportive of each other or they will lose. President Trump should meet with Mike Pompeo and they should decide who will campaign for the presidency and not get into a battle and provide ammunition for the democrats to use against them. Republicans PLEASE UNITE and support each other.

I think the guy must be on drugs if he thinks he can resent any challenge to Trump. I like the guy but he is not electable as President.

As much as I Like Pompeo and DeSantis , THEY are NOT Trump…..

And if anyone believes for 1 millisecond that they are NOT going to get HAMMERED HARD by BOTH the Democrats and by our so-called “media” , then you are living in a Fantasy World…

The question is …. will they be able to handle and withstand the onslaught of LIES being thrown at them…

Pompeo would be better as Trump’s VP in 2024, and he would be a shoo-in as President candidate in 2028 for another 8 years of Republican leadership. That should be enough to rid the nation of Fake News, CRT, BLM, and antifa. Whatever would happen to the Democrat Party is their own doings, but it would be excellent to remove the lying from the public scene. The USA needs to leave that to the Russians, Chinese, and Muslims.

Trump and DeSantis are the ticket we need to tackle whats happening, not just in America, but world wide, and they both support Israel which is essential to America’s future. The. nations that treat Israel poorly are nations that fall.
