An adviser to former Vice President Mike Pence explained to CNN on Wednesday that Pence has “aspirations” to run for President, stoking further speculation regarding a 2024 Presidential Election bid.
Olivia Troye, who was an adviser to Pence throughout his time in the White House, explained to CNN that he has long aimed to be President of the United States.
“It is a known thing in Pence’s orbit and those of us who worked for Mike Pence,” Troye said to the network. “I think he desired to make a run for the Oval Office. I think that’s partially why he joined the Trump administration on his ticket.”

Pence made his return to the country’s capitol on Tuesday for the first time since he left office in January 2021, in which members of House Republicans praised him for his reaction on Jan. 6 and some urged him behind-closed-doors to run for president, according to Business Insider.
“I know he has aspirations to do so, and I think we’ll have to see how this plays out for him given where the Republican base is right now and how much of a stronghold Trump has on the party,” she explained CNN.
