Since Mike Pence refused to stop the certification of the 2020 election his relationship with Trump has become strained.
Trump has repeatedly blasted Pence over his decision to certify the election.
Pence has since admitted there were irregularities but still claims he did the right thing.
Since then he has begun moving towards running for President in 2024.
Democrats are now openly calling for him to run.
Richard Weisberg, who served in the Obama Administration, wrote an op-ed for The Hill calling on Mike Pence to run for President in 2024.
Weisberg said that Pence should make it his “resolution to impede a dastardly and brutish leader” and restore “sanity” to the Republican party.
If any or all of these scenarios ring true, Pence is going to do the right thing early in 2022 by announcing his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, emphasizing that his party needs to get rid of Trump and campaigning immediately to restore Republicans to sanity.
We haven’t heard much from Pence since the Capitol riots. He singlehandedly kept the republic that day (and night). If Benjamin Franklin could vote for the man of the year, it would be for Pence. The calm visage of the then-vice president fulfilling his ministerial duty to count electoral votes that day contrasted vividly with the adoring unctuousness of his face over the prior four years as he gazed at President Trump with reverence.
On Jan. 6, the good Christian in Pence finally dovetailed with the good servant of the Constitution who had sworn to defend against enemies, domestic or foreign. His candidacy would mobilize many faithful Christians who, remarkably, stand by Trump against their better judgment. They want a believer who knows the Bible right-side-up. They would vote for Pence in 2024.
Arise, Mike Pence! Make it your resolution to impede a dastardly and brutish leader. Reemerge to restore sanity to your party and legitimacy to your legacy. You will have the good wishes of all those who may vote against you eventually in November 2024 and the inevitable support of those in your party who are needed to nominate you that prior summer.
Polls have shown Trump with a massive lead in the GOP primary.
