House Republicans voted to keep Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney in her leadership position on Wednesday night by secret ballot.
Cheney will maintain her position as House Republican Conference Chair, the third-highest position in GOP House leadership, according to a CNN source.
Two CNN sources told the outlet that Cheney, in an eight-minute speech near the start of the meeting, refused to apologize for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump and delivered what CNN described as a “calm yet firm defense of the Constitution.”
“I won’t apologize for the vote,” Cheney, who already has at least one primary challenger, reportedly told the House Republican conference.
