Former Vice President Mike Pence has begun his post-VP life but it doesn’t look at all like he’s leaving the political world.
Far from it.

Looks like the Heritage Foundation snagged him — and that’s gonna be a great fit.
'The Heritage Foundation is a flagship of the conservative movement and I am profoundly honored to join them as a distinguished visiting fellow to advance conservative policies that will benefit every American,' Pence said in a release.
'The Heritage Foundation helped shape my conservative philosophy for decades and played a pivotal role advancing conservative policies throughout the Trump Administration. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with the all-star team at Heritage as we continue to take the case for a strong national defense, free markets and traditional values to policymakers across the Nation and to every American who cherishes our Heritage of Freedom,' the former VP added.
Heritage Foundation president Kay Cole James confirmed the ‘new hire.’
'Over the course of the past four years, our team at Heritage has worked closely with members of the Trump administration on a host of policy accomplishments,' she said. 'That's why I am excited Vice President Mike Pence will join forces with Heritage to ensure we continue to advance conservative principles and policy solutions. His allegiance to the Constitution and commitment to advancing a conservative policy agenda make him an outstanding fit for The Heritage Foundation.'
She went on to thank Pence for his service to our country.
'Mike Pence served with honor and excellence in his home state of Indiana as a congressman and as governor before becoming one of the most consequential vice presidents of our time,' James said.
'A man of faith, principle, and character, Vice President Pence is a heroic protector and defender the Constitution and the values that unite us as a nation. I am overjoyed that Heritage will continue to work alongside Vice President Pence as we have for the last 30 years. As much as we've accomplished in that time, especially over the last four years, there is so much more to be done,” she added.
“Knowing that Vice President Pence is still in the fight is an adrenaline shot for the entire conservative movement.'
From this perch, Pence will be well-positioned to run for the Oval in 2024; he’s got a built-in policy shop and he’ll have cultivated some great relationships by then.
