The New York Post reports:
A member of the House Republican leadership team has been whipping votes for New York Rep. Elise Stefanik to replace House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney as the third-ranking GOP member.
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.) told The Post on Tuesday that he is confident the upstate New York congresswoman has the support needed to obtain the position.
Stefanik, 36, a former chair of the moderate Tuesday Group who played a leading role in defending Trump during his impeachment hearings, has a close working relationship with McCarthy.
Read the full article. Stefanik, perhaps obviously, is no moderate. She’s a far-right “Big Lie” MAGA sycophant conspiracy theorist who voted against accepting the votes of the Electoral College.
