Pence slams report on possible 2020 presidential groundwork

The Times story said some Republicans were moving to form a "shadow campaign" for 2020, as though the president, Donald Trump, were not involved.

For his part, Mr Pence has set up the Great America Committee, a political fundraising group.

"The allegations in this article are categorically false and represent just the latest attempt by the media to divide this administration", he said in the statement.

The paper also reported that Pence hired "sharp-elbowed political operative" Nick Ayers as his chief of staff, "a striking departure" from vice presidents who have tended towards putting operatives with more experience in government in that position.

A spokesman for Vice President Pence dismissed speculation on Saturday that the vice president was eyeing a White House run in 2020, calling such claims "wishful thinking".

Trump's weak poll numbers and the uncertain course of the various investigations into his 2016 campaign have created uncertainty about whether he will seek reelection in 2020.

Martin and Burns describes an "independent power base" of party leaders that Pence appears to be building, including Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska), Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), and Governor John Kasich (R-Ohio).

His White House appears to be in a state of nearly constant crisis with a neverending stream of leaks and dismissals.

"Vice-President Pence is a very loyal, very dutiful, but also incredibly effective vice-president, and active vice-president", she said.

Pence continued, saying his team will "focus all our efforts to advance the president's agenda and see him re-elected in 2020".
