  • Former Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview Sunday that candidates who want to be 2024 Republican contenders should announce their bids by June.
  • “I think anyone that would be serious about seeking the Republican nomination would need to be in this contest by June,” Pence told CBS News in an interview clip.
  • The June deadline would apply to his own possible candidacy, he said. Pence has not formally announced he is running for president but has made repeated overtures in that direction.
