Mike Pence Exits 2024 Presidential Race

Former Vice President Mike Pence concluded a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas Saturday with the announcement that he was ending his presidential campaign.

Per Politico, Pence said “The Bible tells us that there’s a time for every purpose under heaven. Traveling across the country over the past six months, I came here to say it’s become clear to me that it’s not my time. So after much prayer and deliberation, I have decided to suspend my campaign for president effective today."

Averaging 3.8% in recent polls, Pence saw between 3% and 6% support in most of the national Republican polls conducted in recent months. While that qualified him to appear in both GOP debates held thus far, his campaign was not gaining traction and was struggling with financial problems. His polling numbers in Iowa, where he had focused his campaign's efforts, had been even weaker than the national numbers.
