According to multiple allies close to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the Republican Party will likely vote to oust Liz Cheney by the end of the month. Sources say that because the Chairwoman of the House Republican Conference refuses to focus on helping the party win back the House and continues harping on the past and former President Trump the Party is ready to have her removed.
The Daily Wire reports:
“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” a top McCarthy ally said on Monday. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”
“She is a big distraction,” the ally said. “I don’t see McCarthy saving her this time.”
“This is a broad range of lawmakers who have had it with her,” a second McCarthy ally said. “She’s a liability, and McCarthy’s as fed up as the rest of us that she is focused on the past rather than winning back the House.”
Recently, Rep. Jim Banks, chairman of the Republican Study Committee harshly criticized Liz Cheney’s remarks about Trump during the GOP retreat in Florida. Rep. Banks said Cheney was completely unfocused on helping the party and instead put her energy into bashing Trump.
“That’s what we got out of Liz Cheney, which doesn’t help us remain focused on that single goal,” Banks said. “Her lack of focus on that, while being focused on other things, and proving her point, was an unwelcome distraction. The sort of sideline distractions at the GOP retreat will only serve to hold us back from being focused on that nearly unanimous goal we have as a conference.”
