Former Vice President Mike is fueling 2024 presidential rumors with his latest trip to New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary in the race for the White House.
Fox News reports:
Pence will keynote a fundraising event for the New Hampshire Senate Republicans on Wednesday, Dec. 8. Word of the former vice president’s appearance at the gathering, which will take place in Manchester, New Hampshire, was shared first with Fox News on Sunday.
The former vice president earlier this month made his second visit this year to Iowa, the state whose caucuses for half a century have kicked off the presidential nominating calendar. Pence also stopped this spring in South Carolina, which votes third in the GOP primary and caucus calendar, and earlier this month in Nevada, which holds the fourth contest.
The fundraiser in New Hampshire will help bring in campaign cash for Republicans as they build resources to hold their 14-10 majority in the New Hampshire Senate in next year’s contests. Republicans, thanks in part to GOP Gov. Chris Sununu’s landslide reelection victory in 2020, won back control of both houses of the state legislature, which they had lost in the 2018 elections.
“It’s great to have former Vice President Mike Pence back in the Granite State and we’re thrilled that he is helping the NH Senate Republicans’ efforts to maintain the majority we won in a hard fought 2020 campaign,” state Senate president Chuck Morse said in a statement.
During his trip to New Hampshire Pence will also be headlining a Heritage Foundation even against tax increases. Pence joined the Heritage Foundation earlier in the year.
