Pence makes a surprising 2024 election announcement

October usually is the month for a major election surprise. But this year, it’s looking like that month will be January.

And Pence makes a surprising 2024 election announcement.

Former Vice President Mike Pence dropped out of the presidential race in October.

But the Pence name has made headlines again for another election withdrawal.

This time, Rep. Greg Pence (R-IN), Mike Pence’s brother, has announced that he will not run for reelection this year.

“In 2017, I ran for Congress because I was Ready to Serve Again,” Pence noted in a post on X.

“As a former Marine Officer, I approached the job with purpose. After three terms, I’ve made the decision to file for reelection.”

“For the remainder of my term this year, our team will continue to focus on delivering outstanding constituent services,” he continued.

Pence also added that is has been a “privilege and honor” to represent Indiana’s 6th District on Capitol Hill.

During the 2022 midterms, Rep. Pence was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, who commended him as someone who is “Strong on the Border, Protects Life, Defends the Second Amendment, and Supports our brave Military and Vets.”

Pence isn’t the only congressman from Indiana who announced his retirement this week.

Rep. Larry Bucshon (R) is also not seeking reelection as a Rep. from the Hoosier State.

“Scripture teaches us, ‘For everything there is a season,’ and it became clear to me over the Christmas holiday with much discernment and prayer that the time has come to bring my season in public service to a conclusion,” Bucshon announced on X.

“Therefore, I will not seek reelection to an eight-term and conclude my service in the House of Representatives at the end of the 118th Congress.”

These two congressmen are of over two dozen members of the House who have decided not to run for reelection in 2024, according to the Associated Press.

“More than two dozen House members are seeking other office or retiring so far heading into the 2024 election,” reports the AP.
