Conservatives search for viable replacement to Rep. Liz Cheney in Wyoming

Wyoming State Representative Liz Cheney (R) is currently being stripped from her Republican leadership in the House of Representatives following her vocal opposition to the party movement over the past 4-5 months.

Congressman Cheney has come under fire amongst conservative thought leaders for her support for much of the Biden Administration’s new political agenda and opposition to former President Donald Trump. Additionally, Cheney has recently become a large critic of former Republican President and conservative thought leader, Donald Trump. Cheney’s position on the Republican leadership committees is to be filled by another political figure; Who, however, has not been determined yet. Some Republican leaders have claimed that they will wait to announce a replacement for Cheney until Former-President Trump endorses a conservative politician for her position. 

At the same time, many Republicans have endorsed Elise Stefanik (R, NY) for Cheney’s leadership position. Meanwhile, many conservatives have endorsed another: Representative Jim Banks (R, IN). President Trump has vocalized support for both Banks and Stefanik. As it is becoming increasingly likely that Cheney will be removed from her position of Republican Leadership, it also becomes unclear who will replace her. Nonetheless, it is very likely that it will be either Rep. Banks or Rep. Stefanik filling Cheney’s position of leadership for the Republican Party.
