Dear Commons Community,
Alyssa Farah, Mike Pence’s former press secretary and Donald Trump’s former communications director, says she believes Mike Pence will run against Donald Trump in the next primary election. In a CNN interview last night (see video above), Ms. Farah gave her insights on a number of Trump White House issues during the latter part of his presidency including the 2020 election, the January 6th insurrection and possible challenges to Trump for the Republican nomination for president in 2024. In addition to Pence, she mentioned Mike Pompeo and Florida’s Ron DeSantis as possible candidates. She added that a “coronation of Donald Trump as a candidate would be the worst thing for the party and for the country.”
The entire interview was quite interesting. Her comments about the 2024 election come at about the 8:50 mark.
