Former Vice President Mike Pence will kick off his 2024 bid for the presidency in a Des Moines, Iowa, rally on June 7, DailyMail.com has confirmed.
Pence will then head to New Hampshire and other early voting states to lay out his message to voters.
He is also set to participate in a CNN town hall in Iowa with Dana Bash following his official kick-off rally next Wednesday.
The former vice president joins a growing field of GOP hopefuls including his old boss former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Sen. Tim Scott, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is also expected to join the race next week.
Pence has been teasing a 2024 presidential bid for months and he is expected to be at Sen. Joni Ernst’s upcoming Roast & Ride event this weekend.
The former vice president has zig zagged across early voting states for the last several months, building momentum with the voting base.
He will now officially come head-to-head with his former boss, Donald Trump, as the 2024 primary competition heats up.
The former vice president is polling behind Trump and DeSantis in recent polls at around six percent.
Trump has held a steady lead over the GOP pack, as support for DeSantis has dwindled.
Pence laid out his ideal ‘standard-bearer’ for the Republican Party during a Federalist Society conference in Washington, D.C., last month.
‘I believe that we as conservatives hold the keys we hold the solutions for America. But but but our challenge is to express those in a way that allows us to move our nation forward and I believe we can,’ Pence said, referring to the 2024 election.
Pence slammed the Biden administration’s record in office as a ‘disaster’ and continues to compare the achievements of the Trump-Pence administration to the failing policies of the current leadership.
The first time Pence made a jab at former President Donald Trump was before a similar crowd of conservative legal leaders over a year ago in February 2022.
In his first real rebuke of the former president, Pence told the Federalist Society crowd in Florida: ‘President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election.’

Since then, Pence has become more vocal about the pitfalls with Trump’s handling in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
The former vice president recently released a book titled ‘So Help Me God,’ in which he detailed his experience in the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The former president also has been subpoenaed by a D.C. federal court to testify before a grand jury in a case related to the January 6 Capitol riot.
Pence has not fought the subpoena, although Trump’s attorneys stand ready to intervene on his behalf and seek executive privilege immunity.
