EXCLUSIVE: As he builds toward a likely 2024 White House run, former Vice President Mike Pence will return to the crucial early voting presidential nominating state of New Hampshire.
Fox News has learned that, on Dec. 12, Pence will stop in New Hampshire, which for a century has held the first primary on the road to the White House. Pence will host two book signings for his new autobiography “So Help Me God,” in which the former vice president gives an account of his career, including his four years serving under then-President Donald Trump.
Pence, who’s long been a champion for social conservative voters, will hold a book signing in Manchester, New Hampshire, with Cornerstone, a non-profit Christian advocacy organization in the Granite State. And he’ll take part in a second book signing at the Wentworth by the Sea hotel in New Castle with the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women.
The former vice president, who was busy the past year and a half crisscrossing the country to campaign and help raise money for Republicans running in the 2022 elections, has made multiple stops in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, the first four states to vote in the Republican presidential nominating calendar.
Pence has been making moves, such as building relationships in the early voting presidential primary and caucus states that usually precede the launch of an actual White House campaign.
Those moves include promoting his new memoir, which debuted earlier this month at No. 2 on The New York Times bestseller list, and an accompanying media tour in which he took part in over 40 interviews in the first week of the book’s release. The former vice president’s media tour, which included four separate interviews with Fox News, kicked off with a sit-down with ABC World News Tonight, which helped boost the nightly network newscast to its most watched telecast in eight months.
Pence is also starting to staff up ahead of his likely presidential bid, last week hiring a new communications director for his aligned non-profit organization Advancing American Freedom. More hires, including fundraising aides, are expected early in the new year.
