Texas Representative Chip Roy is reportedly challenging New York Rep. Elise Stefanik to fill the House GOP Conference Chair position left by Liz Cheney. Roy has an uphill battle ahead as Rep. Stefanik has already received endorsements from top House Republicans Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise along with former President Trump.

The Hill reports:

Roy, a member of the far-right Freedom Caucus, made waves earlier this week when he sent a memo to colleagues raising concerns that Stefanik was too liberal to represent the 212-member conference and that GOP leaders were rushing to “coronate” her.

Stefanik previously was a leader of a group of moderate Republicans before becoming one of Trump’s most vocal defenders on Capitol Hill.

Roy specifically pointed to Stefanik’s past votes against the 2017 tax cut law and in support of Democratic bills to end Trump’s emergency declaration to fund a border wall, keep the U.S. in the Paris climate pact and ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

“We must avoid putting in charge Republicans who campaign as Republicans but then vote for and advance the Democrats’ agenda once sworn in – that is, that we do not make the same mistakes we did in 2017,” Roy wrote in the memo.

After announcing the challenge former President Trump sent out a message emphasizing his support for Re. Stefanik over Roy.

“Can’t imagine Republican House Members would go with Chip Roy—he has not done a great job, and will probably be successfully primaried in his own district. I support Elise, by far, over Chip!” Trump said.

  1. Elise Estefanía Is a great debater and defended President. Trump when he was being impeached by by chairman pencil neck full of shit!!!

      1. Much agreed for sure…. We need more stable leadership that Chip Roy can and will provide than her!

      2. My opinion exactly! I looked at her on Conservative Review when she was being aggressively for Trump in the hearings & she has an F. Right now, she has a 36% conservative score. That means she’s voted with the Leftards 74% of her 6 years in the House!

  2. The people would much rather have Chip Roy than Elise Stefanik, trust me…. Chip Roy is the better Republican of the two and has voted, held up the ideals of the Republicans for a much higher percentage than Elise will ever dream of…. We need stable leadership and Chip Roy is the better choice by far!

  3. Both SU*K !! Vote for Mr. Potato-head. He would be inter-changeable on every issue or new Law. Send MONEY to Mrs. Potato-head as the purveyor of propaganda and wrongdoing. Zero is still zero even when multiplied by eight !!!

  4. if at all possible would vote for Roy….the more I learn about Stefanik the less I like about her and would not even vote for her for garbage collecter
