PHILADELPHIA SHOOTING VICTIMS IDENTIFIED

“Young America’s Foundation is thrilled to welcome Vice President Pence back to the National Conservative Student Conference,” spokeswoman Kara Zupkus said. “Always a crowd favorite, the VP’s pro-freedom message will be sure to inspire our activists who are on the frontlines of the fight for free speech on some of America’s most hostile campuses.”

Other speakers at the conference include “former Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, Congressmen Dan Crenshaw, Chip Roy, and Mike Gallagher; Mollie Hemingway, Kirk Cameron, Dr. James Lindsay, Eric Metaxas, and many more yet to be announced.”

Pence has spoken at conferences and on college campuses with the foundation before. The vice president made waves when the student government at Stanford University tried to stop him from coming by refusing funding. He was also greeted with protests at many of the engagements.

In a speech at the University of Virginia, he teased a 2024 presidential run, telling the audience, “I’ll keep you posted.”
