CNN  — 

Former Vice President Mike Pence will participate in a CNN town hall on Wednesday following the official launch of his 2024 presidential campaign earlier in the day.

Pence, who served as President Donald Trump’s second-in-command from 2017 to 2021, has for months been positioning himself as a contender for the Republican nomination, while also promoting his memoir “So Help Me God.”

The Republican primary to take on President Joe Biden has grown crowded in recent weeks, though Trump remains the polling front-runner for the party nod. Pence had a public falling out with the former president over the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol and has suggested the Republican Party needs to move on from Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election.

The former vice president testified in April before a federal grand jury investigating the aftermath of the 2020 election and the actions of Trump and others.

Wednesday’s event will be the third in CNN’s series of Republican presidential town halls for the 2024 cycle, following appearances by Trump and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.
