Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., on Sunday said Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming has “failed” in her leadership role as House Republican Conference chairwoman.
Banks, the chair of the influential Republican Study Committee caucus, told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace that Cheney has become a “distraction” and House Republicans should be unified in a single mission to oppose the “radical, dangerous Biden agenda” and win back the majority next year.
“I’m the leader of the largest conservative caucus, the Republican Study Committee. Chris, It is uncomfortable at times, but one of my jobs is to hold my Republican leadership accountable for being focused on the Republican ideals that we stand for and the single mission that we have to win back the majority,” Banks said.
“The reason, Chris, that you and I are talking about Liz Cheney on this important program on Sunday morning is the exact evidence that she’s failed in her mission as the chief spokesperson of this party.”
