    Former Vice President Mike Pence announced he will join the stage for the first round of Republican debates as the presidential campaign cycle ramps up.

    On Monday, Pence’s 2024 presidential campaign said that earlier in the day they crossed the 40,000-donor threshold – one of two criteria set by the Republican National Committee for GOP White House hopefuls to reach the debate stage. Pence had already passed the polling threshold mandated by the RNC, according to Fox News.

    The former vice president’s political team said they reached out to inform the RNC that Pence had qualified and spotlighted that they were the first campaign to submit their numbers for the national party committee’s verification process. 

    Pence becomes the eighth Republican presidential candidate to announce they’ve passed the thresholds to qualify for the debate. The other contenders who’ve already reached the criteria are former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, former ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, South Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, and entrepreneur and best-selling author Vivek Ramaswamy.

    Trump has yet to say if he’ll attend the first debate.

    Recently, Trump has upped his attacks against his former running mate over recent comments he made regarding Trump’s ongoing legal battles from Jan. 6th.

    “WOW, it’s finally happened! Liddle’ Mike Pence, a man who was about to be ousted as Governor Indiana until I came along and made him V.P., has gone to the Dark Side,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Saturday. 

    “I never told a newly emboldened (not based on his 2% poll numbers!) Pence to put me above the Constitution, or that Mike was ‘too honest.’ He’s delusional, and now he wants to show he’s a tough guy,” Trump added, denying information that was contained in the indictment. “I once read a major magazine article on Mike. It said he was not a very good person. I was surprised, but the article was right. Sad!”

    During a campaign stop in New Hampshire over the weekend, Pence was greeted by pro-Trump hecklers who derided the former vice president as a “traitor” and a “sellout.”

    1. Pence is a two faced SOB! I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him! He sure plays his role as Mr religion but that is all a farce like him ! He will never be president! Who would vote for him other then the fly that sat on his nose!

    2. Pence was at one time broke as a church mouse and in debt with his brother over 4 million dollars and brother 8 million dollars. In College he was a Democrat and they told him to get voted into political office he should change to Republican. He is a Traitor RHINO and poor President Donald Trump did not have all the facts on Pence the wrench.

    3. Sorry Pence no one will vote for you you are a two faced slob. You betrayed a president of the USA.
      You’re so ungrateful no one would know who you are if Trump hadn’t made you his vice president.
      By betraying Trump you betrayed the American people.

    4. Those who support Pence must have very low IQ’s as Pence made his ow bed so let him lies in it.

      I will not ever vote for Pence for any government position let alone president. He is not smart enough to do the job.

    5. god and his globalists and his globalist puppets; soros, chester biden crime family, demonrat criminal party, rino criminal party, usps CRIMINAL organization and all his other CRIMINAL organizations will use all the voter fraud they can to make sure globalist puppet pence or globalist puppet christie beat anti globalist Trump .
