The media and other political observers have been running wild with speculation about who Donald Trump could potentially choose as his Vice Presidential running mate for months now.
One Congresswoman who was pro-Trump before she was anti-Trump and then came back around to somewhat be pro-Trump is doing her best to make herself a potential VP candidate.
And now this Republican Congresswoman remains the only human fueling rumors she’ll be Donald Trump’s Vice President with one unbelievable interview.
Earlier this year, former President Donald Trump’s most adamant supporters were taken aback by reports that he was considering nominating Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as his Vice Presidential running mate.
Mace, of course, originally made a name for herself by running a long-shot U.S. Senate campaign as the “conservative” challenger to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in 2014 by milking her status as the first female graduate of The Citadel’s cadet program for everything she had.
But once that effort failed, Mace somewhat disappeared from public view for some time, only to reemerge as a field staffer for Trump’s South Carolina efforts during the 2016 election.
Being connected to Trump was the break Mace needed to ultimately secure a seat in the South Carolina legislature, which she ultimately parlayed into a 2020 Congressional campaign – a campaign in which she again positioned herself as the “conservative” and “pro-Trump” candidate in the race, earning herself Trump’s personal endorsement.
But literally immediately after she was declared the winner in her first Congressional campaign, Rep. Mace began to backtrack on virtually everything she had built her name on.
She jumped in with Democrats to pretend Trump somehow organized and led an “insurrection” on January 6, even going so far as to claim the former President had “wiped out” his “entire legacy” that day.
“Everything that he’s worked for… all of that — his entire legacy — was wiped out yesterday,” Mace declared on January 7, 2021. “We’ve got to start over. I’m distraught. We’ve got to rebuild our nation, and we’ve got to rebuild [the Republican] Party.”
Rep. Mace has also gone all-in on attacks against the pro-Life movement, calling pro-Lifers “extremists” while fabricating a narrative that being pro-Life is why Republicans lost the 2022 Midterms, and has even joined some of Democrats’ gun control efforts.
Needless to say, the reports that Trump was considering Mace made zero sense, even if she ultimately flip-flopped on the former President once again earlier this year to begin defending him against Democrats’ lawfare once she realized working class Americans weren’t budging on supporting him against the weaponized justice system.
That is, until The Daily Beast released a report that revealed that the rumors suggesting Mace could be Trump’s Vice President were all created by Mace herself, as she apparently ran around Washington, D.C. telling anyone who would listen that she’ll be Trump’s VP.
“Yet, Mace has been privately telling Republicans that she has a real shot at being named Trump’s vice presidential nominee for the 2024 election, according to six Republicans familiar with the discussions,” The Daily Beast reported.
“Three South Carolina Republicans also said they’ve heard about Mace floating herself as a VP pick, dating back to the early summer,” the report added.
Now, in a recent interview, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto attempted to broach the topic of the rumors Mace created about herself becoming Trump’s running mate, asking her about the “remote possibility” she could be chosen.
“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 said to Mace.
But rather than clear up that she’s really only a candidate for the position in her own mind, Rep. Mace simply doubled down by essentially giving her elevator pitch to be Trump’s VP.
“Well, if we want to win in ’24, we have to unite no matter who the nominee is,” Mace claimed. “We have to come together as a party, and it’s not just Republicans that we have to win over. 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 — 40% of our voters are independent voters. They don’t lean Republican or Democrat. They’re right in the middle.”
Of course, the idea that all independent voters are “right in the middle,” and therefore want to vote exclusively for a moderate, Democrat-lite candidate, has always been a total fallacy created by the ruling class elites who control both parties to keep their bases under control.
Nevertheless, Mace went on to stress her belief that it’s suburban voters – which largely lean to the left these days thanks to woke extremist indoctrination on college campuses – who will ultimately decide the election.
“And those are the folks that are going to be the majority makers,” Mace added. “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.”
But when Mace mentions the need to attract “suburban voters,” what she is really saying is that she wants Republicans to drop the pro-Life movement and cave to Democrats on abortion on-demand up until – and often after – the moment of birth.
Ultimately though, Nancy Mace is simply another ladder climber in many folks’ eyes who is happy to be a political chameleon, flipping back and forth between being a “conservative” and a woke extremist, so long as it results in her securing more power, fame, wealth, and influence.
And as unhinged as it continues to be, she is continuing to be the lone source for speculation that she could be Donald Trump’s Vice President.
