NEW YORK (AP) — Former Vice President Mike Pence has unveiled a new policy platform for Republicans ahead of this year’s midterms elections.

Pence on Thursday offered a framework for candidates — and possibly himself — as he carves out a lane ahead of a potential 2024 presidential run.

Pence’s “Freedom Agenda" combines traditional Republican goals like increasing American energy production, cutting taxes and rolling back regulations with priorities pursued by former President Donald Trump on issues like trade and immigration.

Pence also offers plenty of culture war red meat for the GOP base, pledging to save women’s sports and calling for all high school students to pass a civics test.
