CNN will host a town hall with former Vice President Mike Pence in Iowa next month, as he continues to fuel speculation of a 2024 White House run, the network announced Thursday.

The forum, which CNN described as a Republican presidential town hall, will air June 7 at 9 p.m.

CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash will moderate the discussion, as the former vice president takes questions from audience members who have said they plan to participate in the Republican caucuses in Iowa.

CNN announced the town hall in a report on Thursday, saying it will take place from Grand View University in Des Moines.

CNN writes:

Pence, who served as vice president from 2017 to 2021, has been positioning himself as a presidential candidate for months, though he has yet to officially enter the 2024 race. Pence has said he expects to make a decision on a campaign “before the month of June is out.”

During the town hall, Pence will field questions from Bash and a live audience that will include Iowa Republicans and Iowa voters, who say they plan to pre-register to take part in the Republican caucuses by the deadline set by the Republican Party of Iowa and pledge to appear in person at the caucuses.

It’s the third of CNN’s presidential town halls. The network previously hosted one with former President Donald Trump and announced on Wednesday one featuring Nikki Haley on June 4.

Former NBCUniversal executive Mike Sington mocked, “Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. CNN is doing a “presidential” town hall with Mike Pence, who hasn’t even announced he’s running for president. It would make as much sense to do one with “Mother”, or the fly on his head.”
