2024 ELECTION/MIKE PENCE: “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.”
