Wait, Mike Pence is Still Running for President?

There are a lot of Republican presidential candidates in the GOP primaries at the moment. It’s easy for a name to be lost. However, one we wouldn’t expect to forget about is Mike Pence. After all, he was the VP during the Trump administration.

It’s as if he’s fallen off the face of the earth. Is he actually still running?

The answer is yes. While we knew that Pence would be running for a while, he didn’t go official until early last month. He made a bold announcement by simultaneously denouncing Trump’s “reckless” actions that happened on January 6 of 2021.

Pence decided to make sure everyone knew exactly who he is during his official announcement: “I’m a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.”

The problem is that since he made that announcement over a month ago, we’ve barely heard anything from him. He hasn’t been in the news, he hasn’t been campaigning, and he hasn’t been doing many interviews.

If he thinks that his name alone is going to get him the votes, he’s sadly mistaken.

A look at the polls should tell him he needs to up his game. Most polls show Trump as the leading GOP candidate. The only other person with a two-digit number is Ron DeSantis.

Since mainstream media isn’t covering anything about the former VP and presidential hopeful (shocker), we decided to check out his activity on Twitter. It’s been relatively quiet, though he has been sharing a few photos of his visits around the country, where he’s talking with very small crowds and eating ice cream.

We have to admit, we’re a bit disappointed to see him eating ice cream and posting about it – don’t we get enough of that with Biden?

The only thing we’re really seeing is this tweet:

Apparently, he’s decided to play “point the finger.” The problems we face in America, according to Pence, are all because of Biden. He says that the way to get the country back on the right path is with new Republican leadership.

We agree. But Pence hasn’t told us why we need to vote for him. We’ll be waiting.
