Mike Pence has once again gone out of his way to show his disloyalty towards Trump.
Former VP Mike Pence on Monday endorsed Karrin Taylor Robson in Arizona’s GOP gubernatorial race.
The endorsement by Pence comes months after Trump Endorsed Kari Lake to be Arizona’s next governor.
In his endorsement Pence was quoted saying Robson is “the best choice for Arizona’s future”.
Robson has been noticeable lighter than Lake when it comes to calling out election fraud and no surprise Pence would endorse Robson instead of Lake.

Fox News added these details:
Former Vice President Pence is once again at odds with his one-time boss, former President Trump.
Pence on Monday endorsed real estate developer and Arizona Board of Regents member Karrin Taylor Robson in next month’s GOP gubernatorial primary in the race to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. Doug Ducey.
The former vice president called Taylor Robson “the best choice for Arizona’s future” and emphasized in his statement that “as Arizona Democrats pursue the reckless Biden-Harris agenda, Karrin Taylor Robson is the only candidate for governor that will keep Arizona’s border secure and streets safe, empower parents and create great schools, and promote conservative values.”
Taylor Robson is one of the two polling front-runners in the Republican primary in a field of four candidates, along with former TV news anchor Kari Lake, who for months has been supported by Trump. The winner of the Republican primary will likely face off in November with Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who is the leading contender for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in the one-time red state that has become a top general election battleground between the two major parties.
Who do you think will endorse RINO Robson next?@Karrin4Arizona—you can’t buy this election.
Arizona won’t let you. #Karizona

AZ Central dropped these details:
Former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Republican candidate Karrin Taylor Robson in the race for Arizona governor, declaring her “the best choice for Arizona’s future.”
Taylor Robson’s campaign also confirmed Pence would visit the Grand Canyon State on Friday, holding events for her in Phoenix and southern Arizona.
The same day, Pence’s old boss, former President Donald Trump, is set to hold a rally in Prescott Valley, bringing the civil war within the Republican party to the battleground state with the primary election little more than a week away.
Pence’s support of Taylor Robson is a potentially powerful last minute boost to her campaign and again puts him on the opposite side of Trump, who has endorsed former Fox 10 news anchor Kari Lake for the Republican nomination. Pence stood up to Trump’s pressure campaign to overturn the 2020 election results, and earlier this year backed a sitting governor in another swing state over Trump’s pick.
