Mike Pence Spox Denies He Filed with FEC to Run for President

 A Federal Elections Commission filing to run for president in 2024 in the name of Mike Pence caused quite a stir late Monday evening, however a spokesman for Pence denies he is behind the filing.

Devin O’Malley tweeted, “Former Vice President Mike Pence did not file to run for President today.”

In response to a query by Greg Price who had tweeted out the filing, O’Malley claimed the filing was a prank by someone, “I think someone pranked you.” 

Pence has been thought to be positioning himself for a 2024 presidential run, Axios recently reported. However, a Wall Street Journal poll released two weeks ago show President Trump crushing his former vice president 63% to 28%.
