Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) sent a blunt warning to Republicans that the party will lose in 2024 if moderate members of Congress feel they are being bullied over hot issues such as abortion and impeachment.

She is specifically referring to moderates being forced to take more conservative stances on abortion after the overturning of Roe v Wade and the potential impeachment of President Biden. Her opinion is not in the mainstream of Republican politics and is not likely to be heeded.
Mace appeared on CNN’s “The Source” with host Kaitlan Collins to voice her opinion, once again appearing on the leftist media outlet.
Impeachment will never get 60 votes in a Democratic Senate regardless of how much evidence we present. We need to release all our evidence to the American people so they can decide if this guy — who sold out his country for millions of dollars — should be president. pic.twitter.com/kmc2DsnoZr

Collins asked Mace if she supports the impeachment inquiry into Biden’s business dealings with his son.
“It’s hard to say at this point. I think there’s a difference between an impeachment vote and an inquiry. The inquiry would give us another tool in the toolbox, specifically to look at Joe Biden’s bank records,” Mace responded. “I’ll support an impeachment inquiry. An impeachment vote is totally separate, but an inquiry I would support at this juncture.”

“I think the other point of confusion here is that all this is being tied to funding the government,” Collins asserted.
She also brought up the fact that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) declared that “she won’t vote to fund the government unless that House impeachment inquiry is passed.”
Mace made it clear why she wasn’t voting to fund the government but took issue with Greene’s stance.
“I’m not voting to fund the government because Republicans and Democrats have spent too much,” she contended. “I think holding hostage an impeachment inquiry is wrong.”
Our spending problems exist because both sides, Republicans and Democrats, have spent us into oblivion. We need to sit down and make serious cuts to make America fiscally responsible again. pic.twitter.com/WkLD38bkJI

“But it’s holding the government hostage for the impeachment inquiry, right?” Collins asked.
“In a sense, that would,” Mace conceded.
The South Carolina representative returned to the actual reason she was voting against the funding despite Collins’ prodding on the issue.
“I’m voting against the excess spending because of the out-of-control spending. I’m not going to hold the impeachment inquiry hostage, is what I’m saying is my difference,” she clarified.
Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk – do nothing.

Collins was like a dog with a bone over Greene and asked Mace about a quote from the congresswoman that asserted, “Our conference needs to stop capitulating to the left, more members that are in blue districts. That’s not what the donors are donating money for. And we need to stop allowing Biden-district Republicans to hold up our agenda.”
The host pressed Mace on whether moderate Republicans could lose their seats if they were forced to vote more conservatively and support a Biden impeachment inquiry.
“Oh, 100% it puts them at risk, but also Biden district Republicans are the reason that Republicans are in the majority, have the slim majority that we have today, and if we want to keep that majority, we have to keep those folks in their seats,” Mace stated.
“And so you don’t do that by making Republicans in moderate districts walk the plank on abortion, walk the plank on women’s issues, walk the plank on birth control, walk the plank on an impeachment vote. Like, those are all the reasons why we will lose next year if we continue down that path,” she argued.
You Republicans are frightened of getting primaried whichever of you don’t vote for it, that’s the only thing stopping you, Pelosi didn’t have 60 votes either, but it didn’t stop her from impeaching Trump in the House…. twice

“But then why have the impeachment inquiry if it’s going to put your majority at risk?” Collins asked.
“An inquiry is an investigative tool. It’s different from an impeachment. On the impeachment side, you know the House would investigate, the Senate would essentially hold a trial. But no, I mean the Senate’s not gonna hold a trial, there’s not gonna be 60 votes, it’s not happening,” Mace concluded.
