All of the drama surrounding RINO Liz Cheney has come to a timely end.
Republicans got their house in order this week when they finally gave old Cheney the boot. Still defiant, Cheney vowed to continue fighting Donald Trump, the most popular Republican in the country.
But the question remained, who would replace Cheney?
After a little bit of speculation, we know for sure. And it’s an up-and-coming Trump ally.
From Daily Wire:
House Republicans voted to make Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) the new GOP Conference Chair, the third-highest position in House Republican leadership, after overwhelmingly voting to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from the position earlier this week.
Stefanik won 134-46 over Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) after being endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
You might remember Stefanik for her fiery defense of Trump during the left’s first impeachment charade.
Stefanik is a tough, uncompromising New York Republican. You know you have to be strong to make it as a conservative there!
She became notable during the Trump administration for going toe-to-toe with the left’s worst swamp dwellers (basically any Democrat in the House).
And now, it looks like all her hard work paid off.
It’s a pretty big deal that a relatively new congresswoman be elected to such a high position within the party.
But it speaks volumes of Stefanik’s record and the confidence the party has in her.
It also shows you just how much Trump’s influence continues to be a deciding factor within the GOP.
Cheney was virtually a Democratic operative, working to stop Trump from returning to the public sphere. She was kicked out of her post with prejudice and is facing numerous primary rivals.
Stefanik won, after Donald Trump himself endorsed her.
That’s all you need to know.
- Elise Stefanik was voted to replace Liz Cheney as the House Conference Chair.
- Stefanik is a strong Trump supporter who received an endorsement from him.
- Cheney was removed after continuing to campaign against the popular Republican president.
