Three months and a day after his former running mate instigated an uprising on the U.S. Capitol, Mike Pence officially slipped out of the sewers to stage his political comeback.
The one-term vice president just announced the launch of his new PAC, which many say lays the groundwork for a presidential election in 2024.
Advancing American Freedom aims to “merge traditional conservative values with the Make America Great Again political agenda,” according to a press release.

The group plans to lobby for legislation at both state and federal levels, ranging from foreign policy issues to “religious freedom” and other constitutional issues. And, of course, to push back whatever President Biden tries to do because filibuster is what the modern GOP seems to do best these days.
“The Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s position as the world’s greatest nation with their destructive policies,” Pence said.
I’m excited to launch @AmericanFreedom, an advocacy organization that will champion and build on the successful policies of the Trump-Pence administration. The AAF will help defeat the radical left agenda and advance American freedom for generations to come! ?? https://t.co/tnR04lTCXb
