While the midterm elections are today, speculation about the next presidential election is already ramping up.
Former Vice President and Columbus native Mike Pence is among those reportedly considering a run for the White House in 2024 and he’s going to sit down with ABC News for an interview. It’ll air next Monday.
Pence could be on a collision course with his old boss, Donald Trump. The former President is teasing a big announcement that he says is coming next week. While campaigning for Republicans in Ohio on Monday, Trump noted he’ll deliver the news at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on November 15th.
