Mike Pence launches new conservative organisation to advance Trump-era policies
Former Vice President Mike Pence has created a conservative advocacy group to advance policies that were championed during the Trump administration.
Known as Advancing American Freedom, the launch of the conservative policy group was announced last week, with Pence explaining in a statement that its goal is to “build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump Administration.”
“Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical Left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest Nation in the world with their destructive policies,” stated Pence in the announcement.
Advancing American Freedom will engage in policy discussions and issue advocacy at both the state and federal level by proposing conservative policy solutions. Among many policy focuses, the group will try to “stop taxpayer dollars from funding abortions domestically and globally” and “defend religious liberty, including the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, teachers, and religious charities.”
Mike Pence is believed to be an important factor that could help to support pro-life legislation, especially at the state level, and aid in having Republicans take back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022.
