Ingrid Centurion, Combat Pilot, Iraq War Veteran Takes Aim at Nancy Mace

Last month, I introduced readers to retired lieutenant colonel Ingrid Centurion of Summerville, South Carolina. Centurion is a self-described “Army mom, combat pilot, Iraq War veteran, small business owner, speaker, trainer and author” who recently filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to run as a Republican in the Palmetto State’s first congressional district.
Centurion is the second announced challenger to Republican congresswoman Nancy Mace, who has enraged conservatives in her district by turning on former U.S. president Donald Trump.
Mace captured the first district thanks to a razor-thin victory over Democrat Joe Cunningham, who won the seat by an even slimmer margin in 2018.
A former employee of Trump’s 2016 campaign, Mace ripped her old boss in no uncertain terms for his alleged role in inciting the mob violence that went down at the U.S. capitol on January 6, 2021.
“Everything that he’s worked for … all of that – his entire legacy – was wiped out yesterday,” Mace said the day after the bloody assault on the capitol.
Shortly thereafter, the 43-year-old changed her tune – although the damage to her right flank (and her far right flank) was done.
Mace compounded her problems by aligning with Trump’s nemesis in the U.S. House of Representatives, liberal GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
Accordingly, there are whispers Trump himself may come out against her candidacy.
