    Former Vice President Mike Pence promises “the best days" of the United States are yet to come in a video formally launching his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. Pence is staking his presidential hopes on Iowa as he becomes the first vice president in modern history to take on the commander-in-chief with whom he served. It'll test the Republican Party's appetite for a socially conservative, mild-mannered and deeply religious candidate who has denounced the populist tide that's swept through the party under Donald Trump. Pence says, “Different times call for different leadership." Pence also has to contend with the lingering fallout from his actions on Jan. 6, 2021.

      Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is wasting no time going after Donald Trump while launching his presidential campaign. Christie is calling the former president and current Republican primary front-runner a “lonely, self-consumed, self-serving mirror hog” and arguing that he’s the only one who can stop him. Christie began his run with a town hall in New Hampshire Tuesday night. He ran for president and lost to Trump in 2016. The former governor and federal prosecutor went on to become a close off-and-on adviser before breaking with Trump over his refusal to accept the results of the 2020 election.
