Pence commends DeSantis for Florida’s 6-week abortion ban
“The progress in Florida and the progress in nearly 20 other states is part of a new beginning for life,” Pence said. “I’m going to continue to be a voice for advancing the cause of the unborn on principle and compassion.”
Pence added that he trusts Republicans to choose a different leader other than former President Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. Pence has not declared a 2024 presidential bid yet but is expected to do so in the coming weeks.
“With the challenges we’re facing at home and abroad, I have a sense the American people are looking for different leadership to take us back to the conservative agenda,” Pence said. “I believe different times call for different leadership, and I trust Republican voters to bring us to victory in 2024.”
The dig comes hours before Pence and Trump are both slated to speak at the National Rifle Association’s annual leadership summit in Indianapolis Friday afternoon.
