On Sunday, South Carolina Republican Representative Nancy Mace criticized former President Donald Trump for what she called the ongoing distraction posed by his court challenges. Ms. Mace, an opponent of Mr. Trump, recently argued that the Republican Party should stop "talking about paying off porn stars" and instead focus on a handful of crucial problems.

She called Mr. Trump's recent rally in Texas "distracting and detrimental to our country," in addition to his expected indictment from a New York grand jury for campaign finance violations for a hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

I'd rather not bring up the topic of paying off pornstars at this time. She made an interview on Fox News on a Sunday and remarked, "As a conservative, that's not an issue I can endorse." When our party needs to be united around a common cause, the last thing I want to see is internal bickering and political posturing. It's going to be a battle to maintain control of the House of Representatives, let alone the presidency, in 2024.

Ms. Mace speaks for Republicans on Capitol Hill who favor other GOP members for president, such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

She argued that the country needed to be "like a bird dog" in addressing the problems of immigration and inflation. "Tell me what the Republican plan is to help women after Roe v. Wade," she said.

Ms. Mace, a centrist who frequently irritates conservatives with her forthright criticism of the Trump wing of the party, has suggested that the former president is diverting attention away from kitchen table issues Americans are struggling with under President Biden, which the party should be discussing on the campaign trail.
