( – Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) expressed that it would be a universally accepted opportunity to serve as the vice-presidential nominee under former President Trump, despite her name not appearing on his recently disclosed list of potential running mates. Mace, who had previously declared her support for Trump, highlighted her commitment to unity within the party and her appreciation for her role representing South Carolina.

In a discussion with Politico, Mace touched on her endorsement of Trump and the speculation surrounding her potential vice-presidential candidacy. This conversation came shortly after Trump, at a South Carolina town hall, unveiled a vice-presidential shortlist that did not feature Mace, instead including figures like Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), Vivek Ramaswamy, Representative Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), Governor Kristi Noem (R-S.D.), and former Representative Tulsi Gabbard.

Mace, known for her vocal presence in Congress and particularly noted during the recent leadership challenges faced by former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), had previously been considered a possible choice for Trump’s running mate, especially following the Speakership events in October 2023. Despite this, she remains focused on her duties in South Carolina and her advocacy on women’s issues, which she believes could play a significant role in the upcoming election.

The South Carolina representative has also emphasized the importance of having a Republican woman on the presidential ticket, either as the president or vice president. While she did not endorse Nikki Haley, another prominent figure from South Carolina, Mace acknowledged Haley’s contributions as governor and suggested that Trump might still select a woman as his vice-presidential candidate.
