House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday that his GOP caucus had voiced concerns about House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney’s “ability to carry out” her leadership role — denying that intra-party frustrations with the No. 3 House Republican is rooted in her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.
“There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment. That decision has been made,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told “Fox & Friends” in an interview.
“I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message,” he said. “We all need to be working as one if we’re able to win the majority. Remember, majorities are not given, they are earned. And that’s about the message about going forward.”
