Mike Pence slams Trump and his GOP 'imitators' for lurching away from conservatism
Pence, in address in a key presidential primary state, to warn GOP against 'siren song of populism' that leads away from 'timeless conservative principles'

ROCHESTER, N.H. – Former Vice President Mike Pence argues that former President Donald Trump "and some of his imitators in the Republican primary" are walking away from core conservative values.

It's a charge the former vice president made in an interview with Fox News Digital on the eve of a highly-billed speech Pence will deliver on Wednesday titled "Populism vs. Conservatism: Republicans' Time for Choosing."

Pence will give his address at Saint Anselm College's New Hampshire Institute of Politics, a must-stop for White House hopefuls in the state that holds the first primary and second overall contest in the GOP presidential nominating calendar.

"I think we have a very clear choice that’s emerging, not just between candidates but between a philosophy of governance, and Republicans are facing a Republican time for choosing," Pence emphasized during his Fox News interview at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

"Time for choosing" is a clear nod to the late President Ronald Reagan, who famously used the line in a 1964 speech in support of conservative Barry Goldwater's presidential bid. That address has long been seen as a key moment in Reagan's transformation from Hollywood actor to politician, and eventually president and conservative icon.

Pence is right.

If the choice is between a populist and a leftist, neither get my vote.
