Mike Pence Talks About Running For POTUS To A Small Quiet Crowd3 min read
Mike Pence is making a lot of noise that he plans on running for POTUS at some point, openly flirting with the idea, so it is notable when he shows up someplace, and the crowd is smaller than most anyone else in politics would gather.
During a recent speech, Pence was asked if he was running for POTUS, the StandardNet reported on the details.
“After a 30-minute speech peppered with applause breaks, laugh lines, and policy perspectives, students, attending former Vice President Mike Pence’s speech at Utah Valley University on Tuesday, were given an opportunity to ask a question.
With a preamble about Pence’s career, Cade Bloomer, a UVU student and intern for the Gary R. Herbert Institute for Public Policy, asked the most straightforward question of the morning — “Are you running as a candidate in the 2024 presidential election?”
As soon as the laughter died down, Pence was just as direct in his answer. “Cade, I’ll keep you posted.”
“Pence spoke at UVU as the first guest of the Herbert Institute. A former member of the U.S. House of Representative and governor of Indiana, Pence became the 48th vice president of the United States as the running mate of former President Donald Trump,” SanAntino news reported, adding, “Speaking to a crowd of students, community members, and plenty of elected officials, Pence outlined his vision for the country’s future with commentary on the political and social presence.”
Even Joe Biden could attract more people than Pence; it looks like.
Check out the rest of this article from local San Antonio news, which covered Pence at that Utah event, and showed a smattering of interested people.
“A handful of protesters gathered outside a Gary R. Herbert for Public Policy event at Utah Valley University, which was hosting former Vice President Mike Pence on Sept. 20, 2022.
Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke Tuesday at an event hosted by Utah Valley University while a handful of protestors gathered outside.
He addressed an audience of 700 students and community members at UVU’s Noorda Center for the Performing Arts.”
But truthfully, 700 seems to be inflated from the photos.
“The American people are proud of our traditional American culture and want to see it strengthened and preserved,” Pence said during his speech.
The institute’s mission is to “develop future policy leaders, gather the community and build trust in civic institutions that are the foundation of our democratic republic and the principles of the United States of America,” according to information provided by UVU.
Pence didn’t go out of his way to remind people that the United States is a Republic.
The outlet went on:
Hosting public policy leaders such as Vice President Pence exposes students to a diverse spectrum of thought and is why the Institute was established,” according to the university’s statement. “The Gary R. Herbert Institute has already presented a range of speakers, including Dr. Tim Shriver, Ph.D., Chair, Special Olympics, Dr. Art Laffer, and other legislative and community leaders.”
Ahead of the speech, a handful of protesters supporting health care and abortion rights lined up with signs reading “Save My Care” and “Hey Pence, Abortion Is Health Care,” as well as signs critical of the institute’s choice to have Pence speak, and one sign that read, “Pray the Pence Away.”
The entire MAGA movement would join them.
