Nancy Mace donates plasma to benefit COVID-19 patients
After battling coronavirus herself, US House candidate Nancy Mace (SC-01) recently donated her plasma to benefit COVID-19 patients. Mace expressed a desire to continue donating her plasma as she is able, knowing that this could prove integral to helping others fight the virus once contracted (a recent study found that the mortality rate among patients given antibody-rich plasma was about 50% lower than those who did not receive the transfusion). Mace also encouraged mask-wearing to combat the virus and asked others to consider donating their plasma.

Six Republican women upgraded to 2020 Young Guns Program
The National Republican Congressional Committee upgraded another round of candidates to the highest tier of the 2020 Young Guns program, including six women.

These six women, Lauren Boebert (CO-03), Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02), Victoria Spartz (IN-05), Yvette Herrell (NM-02), Lisa Scheller (PA-07), and Nancy Mace (SC-01), were elevated to the highest status of “Young Gun.” Several other female candidates were upgraded to the second and third-tier categories.
