BREAKING: Republicans just held a vote on Liz Cheney remaining in leadership and she survives!

Ever since Liz Cheney voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump, we’ve been hearing that Kevin McCarthy wouldn’t allow a re-vote on her position in leadership. Well that all apparently changed tonight and she managed to survive:

“Liz Cheney has managed to cling on to her leadership job, sources tell me. vote was 145-61. House just voted in a secret ballot to keep her. Comes after tense, four hour meeting where dozens of members spoke their mind.”

I had heard earlier today that Republicans had the votes to oust her. That appears to not have been true.

But I will say this for Kevin McCarthy. At least he let Republicans decide her leadership fate with this secret vote. I don’t know what led up to his change of heart but I’m guessing it had to do with the situation with Marjorie Taylor Greene.
