Former Vice President and 2024 Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Pence sits down with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds at the Iowa State Fair, as part of her “Fair-Side Chats” series.

On Friday, Reynolds sat down with Pence as part of her “Fair-Side Chats” series and asked about his plan if he were to be elected President in 2024.

Pence was asked about “Bidenomics” which he called a “failure”. Pence noted how inflation and energy prices are both up significantly under President Biden.

Pence said that under his administration we would cut federal spending, and move towards a balanced budget, and that we would do it without cutting social security or medicare.

Pence also promised that America would be energy independent again, refering to the policies under the Trump/Pence administration, although without mentioning Trump by name.

Pence pledged to shut down the federal Department of Education and redirect that money back to the states, and that we will revive federalism in America.

Pence slammed Biden for weakening the country at home and abroad, as well as noted that Russia never tried to invade Ukraine “under our administration”, again without mentioning Trump by name.

Pence concluded with saying that he was running because that this is “no time for on-the-job training; challenges America is facing in the world are profound,” he said. “And we need leadership that can appeal to the better angels of our nature. Leadership that can least have the possibility of bringing the American people together to strengthen our nation, to revive our economy, to defend our values.”

Pence also said that he would always be proud of the acomplishments of the Trump-Pence administration and that he was “always loyal to President Donald Trump until the day came that my oath to the Constitution required me to do otherwise”.

Reynolds is scheduled to interview most of the current 2024 candidates, although former President Donald Trump and former NJ Gov Chris Christie have both declined the invite.

Iowa is scheduled to kick off the 2024 primary season on January 15th.
