Former Vice President Mike Pence’s political advocacy group plans to invest $20 million this year to shape the conservative agenda, an effort to directly counter what Pence had previously described as populism “unmoored to conservative principles.”

Advancing American Freedom, which Pence launched in 2021, announced Wednesday the creation of the American Solutions Project, a three-prong effort to push more traditional conservative policy priorities during an election year likely to be dominated by former President Trump.

“Our nation was founded on conservative principles that have stood the test of time. The Constitution and this great American experiment must not be swayed by movements or personalities, but must hold fast to the time-honored principles that have made America strong and prosperous and free,” Pence said in a statement to RealClearPolitics, which first reported on the new effort.

The new project, an outline of which was obtained by The Hill, will have three main objectives.

The first will be to shape political majorities by creating a policy platform for candidates to embrace “and reverse the Right’s drift toward populism and the Left’s embrace of socialism.”

The second piece is focused on championing conservative legislation and advancing Pence’s policy priorities, which include promoting free trade, limiting government spending, restoring U.S. leadership on the world stage, and confronting China.

The third and final part of the project is aimed at protecting conservative principles, such as limited government.

The $20 million investment will allow Advancing American Freedom to expand its staff, build out its infrastructure and promote its work. RealClearPolitics first reported that former Heritage Foundation President Ed Feulner will join the group, as will major conservative donor Art Pope and Catholic University board of trustees chair Victor Smith.

They arent just going to roll over and die. Thankfully, they arent as cancerously resilient as democrat elites who somehow maintain their grip on power no matter how hard the push toward populism becomes.

I know this board hates Pence.

But "Republican populism" is the exact term for describing what is happening in Louisiana.

So if you are unhappy with how the Republican politicians in LA are governing, you should support an effort to stop that from happening at a national level.

The Groomers and Pedophiles that comprise the modern Democrat Party thank you for your hard work, Mr. Pence.

Waste of money.

Just be honest - it’s anti-Trump money

The GOPe had their chance at limiting the growth of the federal government and failed miserably. They were more interested in crossing the aisle and giving us the uniparty.

Mike Pence was to Donald Trump what Joe Biden was to Barack Obama... a tool. The difference is, republicans ran from Pence like he was covered in rattlesnake aids after his term, while democrats enthusiastically rewrote election law to make sleepy Joe their president.

I was hoping he would spend that money teaching progressives that men can’t get pregnant.
