The GOP South Carolina lawmaker told CNN's Jake Tapper there would be election consequences for Republicans if they promote restrictive abortion bills.
“He should be here, on the Hill, working with Republicans and Democrats to strike some sort of a compromise," the South Carolina Republican said.
“It’s not compassionate... It’s a non-starter," Mace said as she weighed in on the Florida governor signing a six-week abortion ban into law.
The South Carolina lawmaker predicted what will happen if Republicans fail to "read the room" and "find some middle ground."
“Ahhh yes, if you can’t defend your extremism go after a woman’s appearance," the Republican congresswoman told radio host Stew Peters on Twitter.
"There are plenty of things that we can be doing besides offering prayers and silence," the South Carolina Republican said.
Mace also took aim at former President Donald Trump and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) during a Washington Press Club Foundation dinner.
The Republican South Carolina lawmaker accused Gaetz of exploiting the House speaker fiasco for donations.
Rep. Nancy Mace described Rep. Matt Gaetz as a "fraud" and said Rep. George Santos can't be trusted in an interview on "Face the Nation."
Republican Rep. Tom Rice, who voted in favor of Donald Trump’s impeachment, lost his reelection bid in South Carolina.
