Republican Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina may have to compete against a familiar face as she seeks re-election, because her former chief of staff, Daniel Hanlon, has filed to run for the House seat she currently occupies.
Mace, who has been serving in Congress since early 2021, was one of the eight House Republicans who voted to oust Kevin McCarthy from the House speakership last year. McCarthy has since departed from Congress.
Mace recently endorsed former President Donald Trump, even as former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley challenges Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nod.
“Today I’m endorsing Donald J. Trump for President. I don’t see eye to eye perfectly with any candidate. And until now I’ve stayed out of it. But the time has come to unite behind our nominee. To be honest, it’s been a complete s*** show since he left the White House,” Mace said in a tweet.
“Our country needs to reverse all the damage Joe Biden has done. By every barometer, our lives and our nation were better under President Trump. The economy was booming, our border was locked down and our nation and her allies were safer because our adversaries feared him. Donald Trump’s record in his first term should tell every American how vital it is he be returned to office,” she continued.
Trump defeated Haley in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary on Tuesday.
