Mike Pence Sees Fundraising Boost Following Republican Debate

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Former Vice President and 2024 presidential candidate Mike Pence has received a fundraising boost ever since his appearance in the August 23rd Republican presidential primary debate.

Committed to America, the super PAC for the Pence campaign, received $250,000 in donations following the debate. A Pence campaign advisor told The Hill that more than 1,000 small-dollar donations came flooding in overnight.

Additionally, Pence went on CBS’s “Face the Nation” to boast about his campaign’s progress, saying that he is now “more confident” that former President Donald Trump will not be the Republican Party’s nominee in 2024.

However, Trump continues to be the party’s clear frontrunner, garnering more than half of the would-be primary vote, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average. Once thought to be his biggest contender, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has also declined to a meager 13.5% since he launched his campaign.

Trump’s clear dominance over the party comes as he is facing four indictments. Two from the Biden administration’s Department of Justice, one from New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and another from Fulton County Georgia, where the former president’s historic mugshot was recently taken.

Across all the indictments, Trump faces felony charges related to the illegal retention of classified documents, his alleged role in the January 6, 2021, Capitol riots, the falsification of business records, as well as trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, a battleground state traditionally won by Republicans. President Joe Biden narrowly won the state in 2020.

While Pence did seemingly improve in the polls in the days following the primary debate, he is still consistently sitting in the 4-5% range. The same can be said for the youngest Republican presidential hopeful, Vivek Ramaswamy, who while receiving many accolades in the press for his performance in the debate, has still nevertheless hovered around the 6-7% range.

While Pence has lost his charm among many Trump voters since leaving office as vice president, he has nevertheless pledged to support whoever the Republican nominee is.
