Polls show Donald Trump looks like the inevitable Republican Party nominee for president.
The focus of the race is shifting towards who will join Trump on the ticket as his running mate.
And Donald Trump’s vice-presidential selection came down to one Republican woman.
RINO South Carolina Congresswoman Nancy Mace’s name continues to bubble up in the conversation around Washington about who Trump will pick as his vice-presidential nominee.
Conservatives suspect the source of these rumors is Mace herself as Mace barely survived a Trump-backed primary challenger in 2022 and is expected to face another conservative opponent in 2024.
After the disappointing midterm elections, Mace – who reportedly demands that her staff book her for nine cable news interviews every week – went on a media tour smearing pro-life activists as dangerous extremists who cost Republicans winnable races.
Mace’s repeated claims that the GOP can’t win suburban women unless the party embraces Mace’s support for abortion on demand turned into her biggest political vulnerability.
But in an interview with Never-Trump host Neil Cavuto on Fox News, Mace tried to claim her ability to win over suburban voters was her main appeal for the ticket.
Cavuto confronted Mace about the talk in Washington about Trump wanting to pick her to round out the ticket.
“Alright, because Donald Trump, who I also mentioned is not a fan of [Haley], as he’s criticized her quite often, and I’m just wondering how you reconcile that with a very, maybe remote possibility you could be open to being his running mate,” Cavuto stated.
Mace launched into her pitch about how the GOP needed to unify around a candidate in 2024 and again stressed the importance of winning over suburban moms in purple districts like the one she represents.
“Well, if we want to win in ’24, we have to unite no matter who the nominee is. We have to come together as a party, and it’s not just Republicans that we have to win over,” Mace stated. “We have to win over independents and centrists all over the country. We have to win over suburban moms, and I know this because of the district that I represent. We have — forty percent of our voters are independent voters. They don’t lean Republican or Democrat. They’re right in the middle.”
“And those are the folks that are going to be the majority makers,” Mace continued. “They’re gonna be the ones that also decide who the president is, and so I want to make sure that we expand our party and welcome home any of those independents and centrists that are not a fan of Joe Biden anymore, don’t want to vote for a Democrat nominee. I want to give them a reason to vote for our party and for our nominee next year.”
No one wants to see a fair-weather RINO like Mace on the ticket.
Even if the speculation about joining the ticket is Mace’s own making Trump has plenty of reasons to pass on picking Mace not the least of which is her loyalty depends on which way the wind blows.
In 2016 Mace served as South Carolina state director for Donald Trump’s campaign, but after the events of January 6 Mace sounded like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger in falsely blaming Trump for what happened that day.
“Everything that he’s worked for … all of that — his entire legacy — was wiped out yesterday,” Mace ranted. “We’ve got to start over. I’m distraught. We’ve got to rebuild our nation, and we’ve got to rebuild our party.”
Of all the Republicans Trump could pick as his running mate, conservatives believe Nancy Mace would be the worst.
