When questioned about her name being on the so-called ‘shortlist’ for Trump’s prospective VP choice, specifically considering the tumultuous tenure of former Vice President Mike Pence, Rep. Mace reacted, “Well, I have not been asked yet and my focus is now on South Carolina as it always will be.”
While the Congresswoman’s response did not confirm or reject her interest in the VP spot, Mace’s name has actually long been connected to Trump’s VP area. Like lots of Republicans, Nancy Mace has actually supported much of Trump’s policies.

She ran for Congress in 2020 in a district that Trump had won in 2016, and her campaign was strengthened by conservative energy around the country during that duration.
Mace has actually represented a group of Republicans who face Trump’s ongoing influence on the celebration. While she has actually accepted many of his policies, she also appears to be advocating for a vision of the GOP that can interest a wider base without always pushing away Trump’s base.
Regardless of being overwhelmed with ongoing legal troubles over recent months, Trump is running away with the GOP election. All signs point towards a 2020 rematch versus current President Joe Biden, who is presently dipping in approval score.
