Pence reportedly to make two appearances in New Hampshire

Former Vice President Mike Pence will reportedly travel in December to New Hampshire, the state that typically holds the first primary election in the country during the presidential race.

Pence will headline a fundraiser for New Hampshire Senate Republicans on Dec. 8 in Manchester, Fox News reported on Sunday. 

He’s also expected to appear at another event in the state — his second trip to the Granite State this year.

The former vice president spoke at a Hillsborough County Republican Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner in June, in a speech that was interrupted by numerous standing ovations. 

Already this year, Pence has made stops in Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada, all early voting states, fueling speculation that he will launch a 2024 bid for the White House after campaigning for Republican candidates in the 2022 midterm elections, the report said. 

Republicans won control of the Granite State’s legislature and Gov. Chris Sununu, a Republican, was re-elected by a wide margin in 2020.

Many had hoped that Sununu, the son of former White House chief of staff John Sununu, would challenge Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan in 2022, but the governor announced earlier this month that he would seek another term.

Former President Donald Trump has yet to announce whether he’ll run in 2024, but he has held campaign-style rallies across the country this year, including in Iowa. 

A recent Quinnipiac University poll shows that 78 percent of Republicans want Trump to mount another bid for the White House. 

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are also expected to throw their hats in the ring.

Speaking in Nevada earlier this month, Pence told the crowd that Republicans are “going to win back this country in 2024.”

Republicans have been buoyed by recent polls showing President Biden’s job approval rating plummeting and GOP candidates’ odds increasing.

Another Quinnipiac University poll found that 46 percent of Americans said they would want Republicans to control the House and Senate if the 2022 elections were held now.
