Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney could be on her way out from the GOP leadership in the coming weeks.
During an interview on Fox News, Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan doomed Cheney by revealing Republicans have the votes to remove her.
“You can’t have a Republican conference chair reciting Democrat talking points,” Jordan said.
“You can’t have a Republican conference chair taking a position that 90 percent of the party disagrees with, and you can’t have a Republican party chair consistently speaking out against the individual who 74 million Americans voted for,” Jordan added.
Jordan added that he was in favor of ousting Cheney “three months ago,” claiming that “you can’t be the conference chair when you consistently speak out against the leader of our party and you consistently speak out against the positions that the vast, vast, vast majority of our party and our country, I think, holds.”
Earlier this week, Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs defended his colleagues for wanting Cheney removed as the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.
Biggs insisted the approach would signal pushback against Cheney for her disparaging remarks about Donald Trump, his policies, and his agenda.
