Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) said Monday that she wanted to run for the position of conference chair because she thinks the GOP needs “a unified voice from our leadership team.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) scheduled a vote on Wednesday on whether to oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from the conference chair position after she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump and repeatedly trashed him on the House floor and in the press.
Stefanik touted her own qualifications to be chair of the conference and said House members “are very frustrated that rather than prioritizing the message of the conference, there [has been] a prioritization of the individual message of the member who is conference chair and not the overall message of the conference.”
Stefanik said others in the GOP were concerned that “there hasn’t been enough listening from the current conference chair,” but that she was more concerned with her own agenda than with the party.
It seems as though many are tired of Cheney causing anti-Trump drama in the party and just want an end to the chaos.
