Former Vice President Mike Pence has taken a clear stance against his former boss, Donald Trump, by encouraging Republicans to choose a different candidate for the 2024 elections.

Disputing Trump's portrayal of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack as "peaceful" and led by "patriots," Pence described the event as a riot that should never have happened.

Pence's strong words come as he distances himself from Trump's claims and actions. He emphasized the need for new leadership in the Republican Party and the White House to move the country forward.

In an interview on CNN's State of the Union, Pence highlighted the importance of the upcoming Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary for Republicans to support new leadership.

Despite not endorsing a specific candidate, Pence expressed high regard for Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis, and Chris Christie.

He has withdrawn from the race himself, stating that "different times call for different leadership."

Does Mike Pence have a point? Should GOP voters opt for a different candidate in the upcoming presidential election, or should they stick with the current direction?
