House Republicans are moving closer to ousting Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) from leadership, and are already considering replacements — including Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Ann Wagner (R-MO) and Jackie Walorski (R-IN), congressional aides tell Axios.
“The conference meets next Wednesday, May 12. Most members expect the process to oust Cheney to begin then, whether formally or informally, after some of McCarthy’s top lieutenants broadened their complaints against her.”
“It would take up to a two-thirds vote of the 212 caucus members to replace her — a relatively high bar if a secret ballot is held.”
