REPORT: Rep. Stefanik building support to replace Liz Cheney in #3 GOP leadership role

According to a new report from Fox News, Rep. Elise Stefanik, a Trump supporter and rising star in the party is building up support as a candidate to succeed Liz Cheney in the No. 3 Republican leadership post should Cheney get ousted as early as next week.

Per Fox News “Cheney survived a vote of no confidence in February following her support for the impeachment of former President Donald Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. But since then, Republicans have raised more frustrations about Cheney over her ongoing disagreements with Trump and with GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.”

“Republicans are eyeing another vote on their conference chair after Congress returns to Washington, D.C., next week,” the report adds.

Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, told Fox News Tuesday “I suspect that within the next two weeks Elise Stefanik will be our conference chair.”

Stefanik tweeted Monday:

John Kerry illegally sold out America to Iranian terrorists.

John Kerry is compromised and must be prosecuted.
