Mike Pence, the former vice president, gave the impression on Wednesday that he would not support Donald Trump if he ran for president again in 2024 and won the Republican nomination.
Pence was asked at an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday night if he would support Trump if he was the Republican Party’s nominee for president. He said, “Well, there might be someone else I’d rather support.”
Pence said, “What I can tell you is that I’m sure the Republican Party will figure out who should be in charge.” I’ve been thinking about nothing but the upcoming midterm elections, and that won’t change for the next two weeks. But after that, we’ll be thinking about the future, both our own and the future of the country. I’ll keep you posted.
Trump hasn’t officially said he wants to run for president, but in July he told New York magazine, “In my mind, I’ve already made that decision.” [Needs citation]

Pence’s comments are the most recent and most likely sign that he is thinking about running for president himself. They are also the newest of several signs that he is thinking about running for president.
During an event called “Politics & Eggs” held by the New Hampshire Institute of Politics in August 2018, it seemed like he was getting closer to confirming plans to run for president in 2024.
The former vice president was asked about his past in New Hampshire at the event. He replied, “I’ve never spent much time in New Hampshire, but I might someday,” referring to the fact that the first presidential primary election is always held there.
