Over half of House Republicans have called for the removal of Liz Cheney (R-WY) from the Chair of the House GOP Conference.

According to The Hill’s Juliegrace Brufke, Republican aides say that over 115 GOP members are supporting a move to express a vote of “no confidence” in Cheney’s leadership after her recent vote to impeach President Trump.

The vote would be done by secret ballot.

As GOP Conference Chair, Cheney is the third highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives.

Move To Censure

Currently, more than half of House Republicans are on board with the censure of Cheney. Veteran and newly elected Representatives alike have called for Cheney to step down.

Matt Rosendale (R-MT) said, “Rep. Cheney did not consult with the rest of our conference before supporting impeachment.”

He went on to say that, “She failed to abide by the spirit of the Conference rulesand is ignoring the preferences of Republican voters. I’m calling on her to step down as Conference Chair.”

Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said, “The reality is, she’s not representing the Conference. She’s not representing the Republican ideals. And I think that’s a problem…I’m not alone in that sentiment.” 

Rep. Matt Gaetz said that, “Cheney has left the America First movement.”

Cheney In Trouble At Home

While a formal censure in the House has not yet happened, Cheney’s Wyoming constituents are not happy with her choice to vote for impeachment.

On Tuesday, Carbon County Wyoming Republican Central Committee unanimously passed a resolution to officially censure Cheney.

“Representative Cheney ignored and violated caucus rules by disclosing her intent to join the Democrat Party’s proposed move to vote for impeachment to the media prior to having any evidence presented to the body. 

“Representative Cheney did vote in favor of the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump despite the lack of any formal hearing being held, evidence being presented, witnesses being sworn to testify, or accusers being questioned.”  

The resolution went on to say that Wyoming voters went to the polls in November to, “express their will, their values, and their stated preference in re-electing President Donald J. Trump by a larger margin, and in greater numbers, than those who re-elected Representative Cheney.”

Carbon County GOP Chairman Joey Correnti came down hard on Cheney, saying she has refused to answer angry constituents regarding her vote.

Correnti said, “People in the county party have attempted to get ahold of Rep. Cheney through email, phone calls-and I think only one person got a response from a staffer and it was pretty short.”

Possible Challengers For GOP House Chair And 2022 Implications

There are several Republicans who have been mentioned, or are actively considering challenging Cheney for her Chairmanship. Among the names mentioned are, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), and Elise Stephanik (R-NY).   

Back home in Wyoming, a possible 2022 primary challenger has already emerged in State Senator Anthony Bouchard (R).
