Republican U.S. Representative Chip Roy, a two-term conservative from Texas, said on Thursday he intends to run for the No. 3 House of Representatives Republican leadership job to replace Liz Cheney, who on Wednesday was sacked from the post.
The Wyoming Republican, who recently said she wouldn't rule out running, told Fox's Bret Baier Thursday night that she wasn't throwing her hat in the ring after she was booted from her role as House GOP conference chair Wednesday.
She also said that her focus is on stopping Biden, but that Trump's legacy makes that hard. "We have to get people to vote for us".
Her full-throated defense of Trump in the lead-up to his first impeachment trial and subsequent support of the former president won her the backing of House GOP leaders and Trump, making her the lead candidate to replace Cheney. He spoke a day after he successfully helped dump Cheney from party leadership for refusing to stifle her differences with Trump. "I think what the former president is doing is risky". Since then, she's battled Trump often and many Republicans ultimately turned against her, arguing that the dispute was a damaging distraction.
Even so, Cheney is not going away. Rep. Chip Roy (R-Tex.) is running against her.
Stefanik is a four-term lawmaker from an upstate NY district that in the past four presidential elections backed both Trump and Barack Obama twice.
Elise Stefanik said she was one of the "most bipartisan" members of Congress. She opposed Trump's marquee 2017 tax cuts and his efforts to divert budget funds to build a wall along the Mexican border.
She went on to say that she did not vote for Joe Biden and that she would not vote for a Democrat "ever".
She has remained a Trump booster and joined him in casting doubt on the validity of the 2020 election, despite findings by judges and local officials that there was no evidence of widespread fraud. Hours after the Capitol attack, she voted against formally approving Pennsylvania's state-certified electoral votes.
Roy said Thursday on "The Mark Davis Show", a Dallas-based conservative talk show, that Stefanik was too moderate and should be challenged from the right. He also conceded there was a "big likelihood" Stefanik would win.
The former President weighed in on Roy's late entry into the race Thursday evening with a statement slamming the congressman and reiterating his support for Stefanik.
