Mike Pence is joining the Heritage Foundation to fight back 'against a socialist agenda'

Former Vice President Mike Pence has landed a new job.

The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, announced on Thursday that Pence will join the organization as a distinguished visiting fellow. As part of his duties, he will advise policy experts, write a monthly column, deliver policy speeches, and fight back "against a socialist agenda pushed by those on the left," Heritage said.

Pence tweeted that the Heritage Foundation "helped shape my conservative philosophy for decades" and he looks forward to "rolling up my sleeves" and getting to work. Heritage President Kay C. James seems excited to have Pence on board, saying in a statement that knowing Pence is "still in the fight is an adrenaline shot for the entire conservative movement."
