Mike Pence Files Paperwork for Trump to Be on New Hampshire Ballot

Vice President Mike Pence filed paperwork to add President Donald Trumps name to New Hampshires Republican primary ballot on Thursday.

Pence signed the papers and paid a $1,000 filing fee at the New Hampshire Secretary of States office in Concord as supporters yelled “four more years.”

“Were going to be here in New Hampshire; were going to be traveling all over the country,” Pence said at the State House before the paperwork was filed, reported The Hill.

“Under President Donald Trumps leadership, we have made America great again,” Pence continued, adding that Trumps efforts to rebuild the military, cut taxes, and trade deals have benefitted Americans “despite incredible opposition by the Democrats and their allies in the media.”

“But to keep America great, New Hampshire, we need four more years,” he also said.

Pence also pushed back against the House Democrat-led impeachment inquiry into President Trump, telling reporters there was no quid pro quo in his dealings with Ukraine.

“Im very proud of the way weve stood with Ukraine against Russian aggression,” Pence said, as reported by local station WMUR. “But in all of my discussions with [Ukraine] President Zelensky, we focused exclusively on President Zelenskys efforts to end corruption in the Ukraine and also enlist European support.”

“Whats going on in Washington, D.C. today is a disgrace,” he explained. “Behind closed doors, theres a so-called impeachment inquiry that I think the American people know is nothing more than a partisan impeachment. Its the latest effort by the Democrats to try to overturn the results of the 2016 election.”
