Pence files paperwork for presidential run

Former Vice President Mike Pence is officially running for president in 2024.

The Columbus native filed the Federal Election Commission paperwork to enter the race yesterday, joining a growing field of candidates vying for the Republican nomination. Pence has spent the last several months making frequent trips to early primary states like South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa.

Pence is expected to publicly launch his campaign with an event in Des Moines tomorrow. He is scheduled to hold a town hall forum hosted by CNN with the network’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash moderating a discussion between Pence and Republican voters in Iowa.
