Because I can think of no other reason why Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) would do this, here are my thoughts: First, she reminds me of a love-struck teenager emitting the desperation that frequently accompanies pangs of the heart when young. Except that Nancy Mace is a grown woman and a politician. And this certainly isn’t a romance. So, standing in front of Trump Tower and humiliating herself like this to win back Trump (who has already endorsed her competitor in the midterms) or reach his base is just cringe-inducing:

From The Hill:
Former President Trump endorsed GOP candidate Katie Arrington on Wednesday in her bid to unseat Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), who has blamed Trump for causing the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
Trump, in a statement via his Save America PAC, knocked Mace, calling her “an absolutely terrible candidate” who has been “disloyal” to the Republican Party. He also said the congresswoman’s “remarks and attitude have been devastating for her community, and not at all representative” of the GOP.
Trump’s endorsement comes one day after Arrington jumped into the GOP primary in South Carolina. In her announcement video, she said Mace “sold out President Trump.”
“Let’s be honest. Nancy Mace is a sellout. She sold out the Lowcountry. She sold out President Trump. She is more interested in becoming a mainstream media celebrity than fighting for the people she’s supposed to represent,” Arrington said.
“Selfies with Carole Baskin, Monkey Island, legalizing marijuana. Why is she prioritizing that over the skyrocketing inflation, high gas prices and economic security for the Lowcountry? Is Nancy Mace high?” she added.
