Vice President Mike Pence sat down for an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller on Thursday, where he didn’t rule out the possibility of running for president in 2024.
The Caller spoke with Pence during his Thursday trip to speak to cadets at the Virginia Military Institute. In response to whether he planned to lead the Republican Party after President Donald Trump leaves office in 2020 or 2024, Pence said he is confident Trump will win in November but hasn’t thought past the election.
“I haven’t given any thought to anything beyond the election in 2020 because I think this election is so important to the life of the nation. I think this could well be one of the most important elections in the long and storied history of the United States, because we’re really deciding what path we will take,” Pence said.
“By winning in 2020, we have an opportunity to continue to take our nation on the path that President Trump set us on in 2016, so all of my energies, all of my focus is dedicated to that prospect, and we’ll let the future take care of itself,” he added. (RELATED: Nikki Haley
