Monday, Utah Senator Mitt Romney tweeted “Expelling Liz Cheney from leadership won’t gain the GOP one additional voter, but it will cost us quite a few.”
A week earlier Romney wrote “Every person of conscience draws a line beyond which they will not go: Liz Cheney refuses to lie. As one of my Republican Senate colleagues said to me following my impeachment vote: “I wouldn’t want to be a member of a group that punished someone for following their conscience.”
A House vote on whether to remove Cheney from her leadership conference chair role is set for Wednesday.
Last week, Rep. Jordan said that “the votes are there” to remove Cheney as House Republican Conference chair.
“She definitely needs to go,” Jordan said calling the GOP a “pro-America, populist party rooted in conservative principle with Donald Trump as our leader.”

“You can’t have a Republican conference chair reciting Democrat talking points,” Jordan said about Cheney. “You can’t have a Republican conference chair taking a position that 90 percent of the party disagrees with, and you can’t have a Republican party chair consistently speaking out against the individual who 74 million Americans voted for.”
