Former Vice President Mike Pence is keeping busy, landing not one, but two new positions after leaving office a little more than two weeks ago.
The Heritage Foundation announced on Thursday that Pence will be joining the conservative think tank as a distinguished visiting fellow.
The former vice president also tweeted about his new appointment, writing: “The @Heritage Foundation is a flagship of the conservative movement and I am profoundly honored to join them as a distinguished visiting fellow to advance conservative policies that will benefit every American.”
In his new position, Pence will give a series of speeches on policy issues and will also contribute a monthly column for Heritage’s website The Daily Signal.
“Over the course of the past four years, our team at Heritage has worked closely with members of the Trump administration on a host of policy accomplishments,” said Heritage President Kay C. James in a statement. “That’s why I am excited Vice President Mike Pence will join forces with Heritage to ensure we continue to advance conservative principles and policy solutions. His allegiance to the Constitution and commitment to advancing a conservative policy agenda make him an outstanding fit for The Heritage Foundation.”
