Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said she would refuse to vote for House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) for the position of speaker because doing so would be a disservice to her constituents.
In an interview on CNN, Mace gave her thoughts on the speaker race, which she helped cause after being one of the eight Republican votes to oust former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). She said that she would refuse to support the Republican nominee, Scalise, due to him speaking at a controversial event over 20 years ago.
