Chip Roy announces challenge to Stefanik

Source: Politico

Texas Rep. Chip Roy is jumping into the race for House GOP conference chair, teeing up a two-way showdown between him and New York Rep. Elise Stefanik.

Roy, a member of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, has criticized not only Stefanik’s voting record but also how speedy House Republicans are moving to replace the newly deposed Rep. Liz Cheney. Multiple Republicans have complained that they feel boxed in by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who they say put his finger on the scale for Stefanik.

After Cheney (R-Wyo.) was ousted on Wednesday, McCarthy scheduled a forum where candidates for her replacement could speak on Thursday evening and set the election for Friday morning.

“I do believe [Stefanik] should have an opponent,” Roy told reporters. “One of my biggest problems is that we’re not taking the time to have this conversation that we ought to have.”
