...." Mike Pences schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago.
President Trumps first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue werent involved.
The would-be candidates are cultivating some of the partys most prominent donors, courting conservative interest groups and carefully enhancing their profiles. Mr. Trump has given no indication that he will decline to seek a second term.

What bugs me is Drudge’s promotion of this nonsense. He highlights these articles constantly.
They should throw John McCain in the primaries, watch him lose, and then problem solved.
Do you EVER do a search beforehand? Do you even know what I’m talking about?
Good point. Has he posted anything about Awan and Debbie blabbermouth Schultz?
You know, I don’t think he has even bothered to post anything about Schultz!
The GOP wants to get back to business as usual, importing cheap labor and selling out America.
They know they need to bury trump in controversy or destroy him outright.
If these morons are concocting this idiocy for 2020 then it means they know damn well that Trump ain’t going anywhere before then no matter what happens with Mueller’s investigation.
Pence was in Nashville. I would not give him the time of day.
Pence isn’t promoting himself; this is garbage reporting intended to stir up division in the Trump camp. Don’t believe a word of these tramps and thieves.
I agree, but; Pence was here in front of a crowd according to local news.
2018 may be the last year for the GOP if it continues to be the traitorous RINOcrat Party.
More extremely fake news from The Slimes.
And I’ve yet to see any mention of the DWS scandal on his page. So many of the headlines are stupid, mindless garbage. Sure not the cutting edge news sleuth from the past.
That would be in the trash can .
