Mace made history in 1999, and a name for herself statewide, when she became the first woman to graduate from South Carolina’s formerly all-male military college. In 1995, Shannon Faulkner of Powdersville became the first woman to enter The Citadel, after her lawsuit overturned the public college’s men-only admission policyHowever, Faulkner quickly left the school. The District 99 seat that Mace is seeking was held by Jim Merrill, the former House majority leader who resigned in September after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of misconduct in officeMerrill is one of a half-dozen legislators to have been swept up thus far in an ongoing State House corruption probe. A Charleston real estate agent and former marketing consultant, Mace ran for office in 2014, launching a long-shot bid against incumbent Lindsey Graham for the GOP nomination for the U.SSenateMace won 6 percent of the vote in a seven-way primary. In 2016, Mace was a South Carolina director of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, as was Merrill.
