House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy admitted some members of his party do not believe GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, the party conference chairwoman, can do her job effectively amid her public feud with former President Donald Trump.
McCarthy revealed the admission in a Tuesday morning interview on Fox News after Trump and Cheney exchanged sharp jabs at one another in recent days.
“I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message,” McCarthy 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.”
He also claimed that her diminished support within the party does not stem from her vote to impeach Trump a second time for his role in the Capitol riot, rather, they’re “more concerned about the job ability to do and what’s our best step forward, that we can all work together, instead of attacking one another.”
