Former Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart News that GOP candidates focused on the future and solving the problems voters face today “did quite well” in the midterm election. He also said he and his family will give “prayerful consideration” over the holidays to whether he intends to run for president in 2024.
Pence, who is promoting his new book So Help Me God, started by congratulating Republicans on retaking the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“A win is a win. I was in Congress the last time that we defeated a Democrat majority led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the day that Pelosi hands the gavel to Speaker Kevin McCarthy is going to be a great day for America and an opportunity for us to start our way back to the policies that the Trump-Pence administration proved to make our country secure and prosperous and ensures the vitality of our liberties,” Pence said. “I welcome that, and I celebrate the election of a Republican majority in the House of Representatives without qualification.”
However, despite the victory in the lower chamber of Congress, Republicans underwhelmed in House races and failed to retake the U.S. Senate, and missed opportunities in a number of governor races nationwide. Asked to explain what happened, Pence said he thinks the candidates who did well were ones focused on the future and on solving problems voters face.
