Is He Running? He Just Bought A $10M Ad

10

It is looking more and more like Mike Pence is eyeing a run for the White House in 2024. Why else would an outside group headed by the former VP spend $10 million on new advertisements tying potentially vulnerable House Democrats to the failures of the Biden administration?

The advertisements, airing in 11 states, urge incumbent Democrats to support American energy production rather than relying on Russian oil.

“Before Russian bombs began to rain on Ukraine before hundreds of innocent Ukrainians lost their lives, a horrific decision had already been made,” a narrator intones. “Joe Biden caved to the radical environmentalists and stopped America’s Keystone Pipeline and dramatically increased Americans’ dependence on Russian oil, endangering America’s security and helping Russia fund their invasion.”

Pence himself does not appear in the ad, paid for by Advancing American Freedom, the outside issue advocacy group he founded, but it sure looks like he is using the ad buy to not only help his party to take down the Dems in the midterms but also positioning himself to run on these kinds of issues in 2024. 

A bipartisan group of lawmakers have backed bans on Russian oil in recent days after the Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week she would entertain a ban – and on Mar. 8, Biden did initiate such a ban – but for Pence, his group, and ranking members of the GOP, it is too little too late.

The Pence-funded ad blitz targets four Texas Democrats, Reps. Colin Allred, Henry Cuellar, Lizzie Fletcher, and Vicente Gonzalez. It will air in Iowa, against Rep. Cindy Axne (D), and in Maine, Oregon, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Arizona, Virginia, Kansas, and New Mexico – all states where Republicans hope to turn House seats currently held by Democrats.

“In order to set the United States back on a path of energy independence, we need Congress to stand up to Putin and stand up for American energy,” Pence said in a statement announcing the ad buy.

Pence has slowly raised his profile in recent months as he considers his own political future. In a recent address to members of the Republican National Committee, Pence seemed to draw a contrast with his former boss, ex-President Trump, who has offered glowing assessments of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“There is no room in this party for apologists for Putin,” Pence told donors. “There is only room for champions of freedom.”

    There are over 75 plus million voters by corrupt vote count or 78 plus million voters by actuality vote count…..who will not forget how Pence abandoned his President and openly surfaced as “deep states”…..So, Pence will not get enough votes and should stay quietly hidden in Indiana!

    I would vote for Pence for president.
    Trump for president would ruin the republican party and give the election to the democrats.

    Pence is a triple dipping career politician and rode TRUMPs coat tails into the White House. I would never vote for a dinosaur, like him , again and I am trying to vote all of them out,Democrats and Republicans ,He is running because the swamp will fight TRUMP at all cost because TRUMP really exposed them and woke up a llot of people here. The swamp is everything you questioned before TRUMP ever came on the scene.BIDEN comes to mind when i say this and many others in power too!

    I am a Trump supporter and I would vote for Trump again. He did more for America and Americans then Biden hasn’t done.
    Trump is not a pushover or a kiss ass and we wouldn’t be in this COSTLY predicament that this stupid Biden put us in.. Biden is a corrupt politician,along with his administration and colleagues.
