Mace Flips South Carolina Seat In US House Back To GOP

Republican Nancy Mace has defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Cunningham, dealing a blow to the gains South Carolina Democrats made two years ago.

Republican Nancy Mace has defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Cunningham, dealing a blow to the gains South Carolina Democrats made two years ago.

Mace, a member of the state House, beat Cunningham in a seat Republicans loudly announced they were determined to flip back days after the Democrats win in 2018.

She will be only the second woman to serve in the U.S. House from South Carolina.

Mace got support from President Donald Trump on Twitter and once worked on the presidents campaign. But, while trying to link Cunningham to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mace stayed fairly quiet about Trumps support. Anger about the president helped Cunningham make his bipartisan push to win in 2018.

Mace is the first woman to graduate from The Citadel.
