Nancy Mace Seen Confronting Colleague Who Endorsed her Opponent

On Tuesday, Rep. Nancy Mace delivered some pointed remarks to her fellow South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson on the House floor in response to his endorsement of her primary opponent.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Fox News Digital observed Mace and Wilson engaging in a brief but tense exchange during House deliberations.

This occurred hours after Wilson issued a statement endorsing Catherine Templeton’s bid to unseat her.

Mace said in a statement to Fox News that she “would never do to him what he has done to me,” and that “we needed to stop the infighting and unify so we can win it all in November.”

“Too much at stake. And that there is a place in the party for people like me, people like him, Trump, MAGA, independents, women, everyone. Oh, and that I was working hard to crush it Tuesday.” Mace added.

Templeton, a former South Carolina state official, and Marine veteran Bill Young are the two Republican primary challengers that Mace will be confronted with on June 11.

The ire of the former leader’s allies and other mainstream Republicans was elicited when Mace was one of eight House Republicans who voted to successfully depose ex-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., in October.
