Mike Pence is not running for president, according to his adviser.

Devin O’Malley, the adviser to former US Vice President Mike Pence, has rejected claims that he has filed to run for president in 2024. Following the publication of candidature forms on the Federal Election Commission website, reports of Pence running for president began to circulate.
“Former Vice President Mike Pence did not register to run for President today,” tweeted O’Malle, who was Pence’s press secretary during his stint as vice president. He also acknowledged to Reuters that he is a Pence adviser.
The application was made public on a US federal holiday, and some news sites reported that Pence had filed to run for president as a result. Several Twitter users also shared a link to the website.
They surfaced as “raw” files that the commission had yet to process. It’s unclear who filed them. According to Reuters, the FEC cannot comment on particular submissions. He did, however, state that the Commission examines possible fake registration forms and reports.
While his adviser has disputed suggestions of Pence running for president, if he does so in the near future, he is anticipated to face a difficult campaign. According to a RealClearPolitics poll average, only 7% of primary voters planned to support him in December.
Pence has been on Donald Trump’s bad side since refusing to back his quest to overturn the 2020 election results. When asked whether he would back Trump in the 2024 elections at a Georgetown University event in October, Pence remarked, “There could be somebody else I prefer better.”
Later that month, Pence declined to testify before a House committee investigating the US Capitol riots on January 6, accusing it of being biassed. Pence stated that Congress does not have the right to hear his testimony. “It’s a bad precedent for the Congress to call a vice president of the United States to talk on White House deliberations,” he added.
