Top House Republicans, Trump Back Replacement for Liz Cheney

According to reports, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy are backing Rep. Elise Stefanik to replace Liz Cheney’s role as House GOP Conference Chair. Amid Cheney’s repeated comments disparaging former President Trump and refusal to focus on uniting the party to win back the House reports began circulating that the party is preparing to vote Cheney out of her position as early as next week.

Punchbowl News first reported that Scalise has backed New York Rep. Stefanik to fill the role and that McCarthy is working to ensure there are no other challengers.

Fox News reports:

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., spokesperson Lauren Fine told Fox News Wednesday that “House Republicans need to be solely focused on taking back the House in 2022… and Elise Stefanik is strongly committed to doing that, which is why Whip Scalise has pledged to support her for Conference Chair.”

Trump also supports Stefanik to replace Cheney as House GOP conference chair, sources close to the former president tell Fox News.

“Liz will have more to say in the coming days. This moment is about much more than a House leadership fight,” Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told Fox News Wedneday. Politico reported that Cheney has not been making calls to whip support for a potential vote, as she did the last time her leadership spot was threatened.

Despite McCarthy supporting Cheney to remain in her role three months ago when it came to a vote, it seems the friction has become too great and her “unproductive” work ethic has caused concern she can not adequately fulfill her duties as Republican Conference Chair.

“There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment, that decision has been made. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair to carry out the message,” McCarthy said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “We all need to be working as one if we’re able to win the majority. Remember, majorities are not given. They are earned. And that’s about the message about going forward, combating Joe Biden.”

She better go!! I’m not sure but McCarty just like Mitch McConnell are not real fighters. This election was stolen! John Roberts Supreme Court Chief Justice and FBI director Wray and all agents and CIA director and all her agents are totally corrupted.
GOP leadership needs new leadership. I’m afraid they are working for US Chamber of Commerce, Big Tech, Bush family Globalist and Communist China money.
Silent Majority has a True Leader President Trump 75 million plus strong and adding.

Why is Liz Cheney needed in the first place? Can’t recall when she has done the USA and its citizens any good. Send her packing and forget about the replacement. Neither is needed.

Talk to the people in Wyoming, they want no part of Cheney’s kind of governance with the left.

Just read an article by Tony Perkins about why Elise Stefanik is not the right choice for Cheney’s replacement. Apparently McCarthy and Scalise are pushing for Stefanik and nobody else to possibly be considered. It seems that Stefanik is not the right person after reading of her voting record and what she wants and is all about!!! PLEASE learn more about her, we don’t need anymore RINOS in congress!!!

Jim Jordan should replace Cheney. He would be the clear choice if everyone voted on merit instead of identity.

Yes, Elise Stephanie is an avid supporter of Trump and the Republican Party. Liz Cheney appears to think, just because her father was VP under Reagan, that she is entitled to be listened to in policy concerns. Her avid hatred of Trump and her latest attempt to sway the military to her side is proof positive.
