“The Heritage Foundation is a flagship of the conservative movement and I am profoundly honored to join them as a distinguished visiting fellow to advance conservative policies that will benefit every American,” he said in the press release.

“I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with the all-star team at Heritage as we continue to take the case for a strong national defense, free markets and traditional values to policymakers across the Nation and to every American who cherishes our Heritage of Freedom.”

The former vice president also plans to make a fundraising committee devoted to policy as a way keep his associations with donors, multiple sources familiar with the plans said, according to NBC News.
