House Republicans could vote to remove Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney as soon as next week, sources told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
The increasingly embattled Cheney survived a move to oust her earlier this year after she voted to impeach President Donald Trump, but a new round of anti-Trump comments, as well as her foreign and domestic policy positions, have put her further at odds with the GOP conference, Republicans told the Washington Examiner.
“She’s out of sync,” a Republican leadership source told the Washington Examiner. “She’s not helping Republicans win back the House.”
The vote on whether to remove Cheney could occur as early as May 12, a GOP source told the Washington Examiner.
Sources told the Washington Examiner that New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik is jockeying to replace Cheney as conference chairwoman and appears to be favored by GOP leaders.
