Republican Representative Liz Cheney just got the news she’s been dreading. The GOP is lowering the boom and she isn’t happy about it.
According to Breitbart News, top GOP leaders like Jim Jordan are making the argument why lawmakers like Cheney can’t hold positions of authority within the party.
“I think we are united now,” said Jordan. “You know … with Congresswoman Cheney, you can’t have a conference chair — a spokesperson for the party — who’s reciting Democrat talking points.”
Jordan then connected Cheney’s obsession with attacking Donald Trump with a risk to the party:
You can’t have a conference chair who wants to consistently go after the individual who 74 million Americans voted for. You just can’t have a conference chair who disagrees with 90% of our party, so the replacement of Liz with Elise, I think, is a good move. I think Elise has a proven track record. She’s had President Trump’s support, the … leader of our House Republicans, Mr. McCarthy, Mr. Scalise, has good support within our conference, she’s A-plus with the NRA, endorsed by Susan B. Anthony List, and most importantly … she’s a darn good communicator. And we saw that during impeachment a year and a half ago.
