(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Former Vice President Mike Pence is really making moves, announcing his first major ad campaign blitz since he left the White House. The former VP’s Advancing American Freedom organization launched the new campaign against 16 Democrats ahead of the November midterms, spending as much as $10 million on ads advocating a return to American energy independence.
It comes amid rumors that Pence may be considering a run for the White House in 2024, potentially going up against former President Donald Trump in what could very quickly become a bitter war between the two leading Republican figures.
Pence issued a statement to conservative news outlet Breitbart saying that his campaign ads are designed to put America back on track towards achieving energy independence so the U.S. can fully stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“In order to set the United States back on a path of energy independence, we need Democrats in Congress to stand up to Biden and Putin and stand up for American freedom,” he said.
It’s a message that’s entirely identical to comments made by former President Donald Trump since he left office – but if you thought the pair are still on good terms, then think again.
Not only did Pence insist that former President Trump was “wrong” to suggest that the vice president can overturn the results of an election wrought with fraud, but the former vice president also made veiled attacks against the former president’s comments about Vladimir Putin being “savvy.”
“Where would Russian tanks be today if NATO had not expanded the borders of freedom? There is no room in this party for apologists for Putin,” Pence said at a fundraiser in New Orleans recently. “There is only room for champions of freedom.”
The new ad campaign will focus on Congressional Democrats across 16 states, urging them to throw their support behind energy independence at home – a message that will resonate with voters, potentially force Democrats to change the way they vote or expose them as opponents of American energy independence ahead of this year’s midterm elections.
