For months, rumors have floated around the Capitol that Donald Trump would replace Mike Pence in 2020.
Some pundits believe that Trump’s only chance at victory next November rests on switching up his running mate.
And now Mike Pence let the cat out of the bag on if he would be on the 2020 ticket.
Never-Trump RINO Nikki Haley is the name most bandied about as a possible replacement for Vice President Pence.
Some Republicans and fake news “reporters” contend that Haley’s status as a female minority would help the President to attract new voters in the suburbs where Republicans must do well in order to win.
In an interview with Fox News Channel’s Judge Jeanine Pirro, Pence finally put this rumor to rest.
Pence told “Justice” host Pirro he was appreciative of the opportunity given to him to be Indiana’s governor as well as vice president.
“I never imagined I’d be able to be governor of my home state,” Pence said. “And to be able to be here in the White House to be serving as vice president, and to be asked to run again with this president to continue to advance the agenda that we’ve been able to advance for this country is a great honor.”
When pressed by Pirro on whether or not that meant he would be on the 2020 Republican ballot, the vice president said he was not only confident of it but confident he and Trump would win the election next November.
“I’m not only of that, I’m confident we’re going to win in 2020,” he replied.
Many social conservatives and Evangelical Christians support Mike Pence and look skeptically at Nikki Haley.
Pence knocking down these rumors can only help the Trump campaign’s chances in 2020.
