DNC Statement on Mike Pence’s 2024 Entrance

Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to Mike Pence’s entrance into the 2024 Republican primary:

“In Mike Pence’s own words, he was a member of the extreme Tea Party ‘before it was cool,’ and he hasn’t slowed down since. Pence pushed an extreme agenda in Congress and the Indiana statehouse before becoming Donald Trump’s MAGA wingman for four years and then campaigning for election deniers last year. Now, he’s promising to take the Trump-Pence agenda even further, leading the charge for a national abortion ban, cutting Medicare, and ending Social Security as we know it. 

“Pence’s entrance will no doubt drag an increasingly MAGA 2024 GOP field even further to the extremes.”
