“Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, privately battled with the chairman of the NRCC Monday night, where she raised concerns from members about the direction of the party’s campaign arm as they try to win back the chamber,” Politico reports.
“Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota used a members’ only leadership meeting Monday night to press lawmakers about their party dues and contributions to the party committee. At one point, he questioned whether Cheney would continue to contribute campaign cash to the NRCC.”
Playbook: “The No. 3 House Republican going after the chairman of the NRCC in such sharp terms is certainly unusual. Cheney is questioning Emmer’s stewardship of the organization 17 months before the election, and Emmer is wondering if he could count on Cheney to continue to dole out money.”Save to Favorites
