Ya can’t make this stuff up….
The NY Republican House Rep Stefanik prominently mentioned as the choice by House Republicans to replace Liz Cheney is coming under attack also as NOT Rightwingnut enough….
But it appears that ousting Cheney is NOT about policy….
It seems to be just about public support for Donald Trump’s alternate reality….
The 36-year-old Stefanik has emerged as the leading contender to fill Cheney’s spot as GOP conference chair.
But FreedomWorks this week lamented Stefanik’s “dismal” 37 percent score on the group’s vote scorecard, arguing it would be a mistake to put her in charge of messaging in place of the staunchly conservative Cheney.
The Club for Growth has also gone on the attack.
“Elise Stefanik is NOT a good spokesperson for the House Republican Conference,” the group said in a in a Wednesday tweet.
“She is a liberal with a 35% CFGF lifetime rating, 4th worst in the House GOP,” the group added, referring to her score on the group’s own voting scorecard.
“House Republicans should find a conservative to lead messaging and win back the House Majority.”
Such complaints are unlikely to matter in a vote next week that has little to do with policy or conservative orthodoxy. The vote instead is shaping up as more of a loyalty test to former President Trump, the most powerful force in GOP politics despite his loss of the White House, and GOP losses of House and Senate majorities under his leadership….
