( – Former Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon predicted that the former president would select a female vice president in 2024. He stated that the most likely contenders for the position were Reps. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) and Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), as well as South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R).

Bannon, who appeared on The Sean Spicer Show with the former press secretary of the White House, discussed what a second Trump administration could look like both in terms of personnel and policy. Bannon argued that his thinking was extremely structured and that Trump would most likely choose a woman to be his running mate. Bannon had served as Trump’s top adviser during his 2016 presidential campaign and then as a White House chief strategist until he was ousted in August 2017.

He argued that there were many possible choices for the position, including Mace, Stefanik, and Noem, as well as Kari Lake, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R), and Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.).

Spicer proceeded to question whether Mace would be a good option, noting that Trump would pick someone who could not outshine him. Bannon, in response, praised Mace, stating that she came with “brashness and a set of titanium balls.”

Mace had been among the nine Republicans who had voted along with the Democrats for Bannon to be held in contempt of Congress in 2021 after he had not honored a subpoena. Bannon was later convicted on that charge. Since that vote, Mace has appeared on Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, where she spoke about her vote to oust Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from being the House Speaker.

Many on Capitol Hill, including McCarthy, have blasted Mace in the past, arguing that she was trying to get everyone’s attention and that she would frequently change her positions on issues.
