In a press release, Defending Democracy Together spokesman Tim Miller highlighted the creation of presidentpence.com, a website that encourages visitors to show support for Pence, whom the site describes as a "lifelong conservative Republican" who "doesn't grab women by ... anything."

An ad released alongside the website adds that Pence doesn't "brag about sexually assaulting women."

"President Trump’s defenders have endlessly repeated the preposterous claim that impeaching and removing a president undoes an election, as if that weird inauguration and the midterm elections where Republicans got throttled never happened," Miller said.

And while Pence isn’t the president of anyone’s dreams, he isn’t Donald Trump either. So there’s that," he continued.

Kristol, one of the president's "Never Trump" conservative critics, has also worked to support 2020 primary challengers to Trump, a move that has earned little support among mainstream Republicans.
