Vice-President Mike Pence has now endorsed a challenger to a GOP congressional candidate who has already been endorsed by former President Trump, in what many see as a possible prelude to a 2024 primary clash between the two men.
As The New York Post reports:
Former Vice President Mike Pence went against former President Donald Trump Monday by endorsing a different candidate in Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial primary — setting up a political brouhaha that could involve the erstwhile running mates holding dueling rallies Friday.
Karrin Taylor Robson said she was “honored” to have Pence’s backing in a series of posts on her Twitter account.
”He has been a warrior for the sanctity of Life; limited government; law & order; opportunity for all; & the knowledge that our freedoms are granted by God. I’m proud to have him on my team,” Robson said.
Robson, who is vying for the nomination against Trump-backed Kari Lake, also shared a statement from Pence on the social media site.
Pence is expected to headline a rally with Robson this Friday.
