Pence launched Advancing American Freedom, which he said would defend conservative values while opposing the Biden administration's agenda. 

“Advancing American Freedom plans to build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional Conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump Administration,” Pence said in a statement. "Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical Left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest Nation in the world with their destructive policies."

The group will advocate for policies focused on three areas: The economy, foreign policy and "American liberties" like school choice and anti-abortion policies.

The launch of the advocacy group is Pence's latest bid to remain a key player in conservative politics. Since leaving office, he has joined the Heritage Foundation as a distinguished visiting fellow where he has a regular column and podcast, and he also joined former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's (R) Young America's Foundation as a scholar.

Pence is expected to speak later this month in South Carolina in his first speech since leaving office.

The former vice president is known to be interested in running for president in 2024, but the end of his tenure has raised questions about whether he would be embraced by Trump supporters.
