Rep. Stewart’s Statement on the Vote to Remove Rep. Cheney (R-WY) as the House Republican Conference Chair

Today, House Republicans removed Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the Conference Chair. Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) released the following statement:

“Today, Congresswoman Liz Cheney was removed as the Republican Conference Chair. This was not a vote to condemn Rep. Cheney for her previous vote of conscience; this was a vote to unify the Republican Party. That’s why I voted in favor of this motion.

“Members of Congress have a right, and a duty, to speak their minds in representing their constituents. But, a member of leadership has even greater duties. The Republican Conference Chair is responsible for galvanizing and guiding our party back to the majority. That means focusing on creating the future America needs – one that stresses the dignity of work, individual freedom over government dependence, and the principle of equal opportunity for all to rise.”
