Pence 2020? (add your name)
The rumor mill is abuzz with stories about Mike Pence possibly running for president in 2020. He's been holding big fundraisers around the country, asking millionaire donors to make checks out to his personal PAC.
It's hard to blame Pence for thinking Donald Trump will be a one-term (at most) president. But if Pence thinks he can waltz into the White House in three years, he's got another thing coming.
Mike Pence has been Donald Trump's go-to guy for the past eight months. When Trump needed votes for health care repeal, Pence went to the Senate floor to personally lobby the three Republican senators who voted against it. When Trump needed someone to push his biggest lie -- that millions of people voted illegally last year -- Pence gleefully stepped up to the plate to run Trump's sham "voter fraud" commission.
Pence hasn't kept his nose clean when it comes to Trump's scandals either. He praised Trump's decision to fire former FBI director James Comey, who was investigating their campaign's potential collusion with Russia.
Mike Pence is Donald Trump without the hair (or the Twitter followers). Make sure he knows that if he tries to run for president, we'll be there to stop him:
