Cheney leadership ouster unites Republicans towards the future

May 12, 2021, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to the ouster of U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as House Republican Conference Chair:

“Liz Cheney continued to choose to look backwards at the Trump presidency rather than fight the dangerous leftward lurch by Biden-Pelosi-Schumer that harms all Americans. It is her failure to have a vision for the future and how to lead against the big government, corporatist threat against freedom that made her ouster as House Republicans’ lead communicator necessary. Republicans made the right choice to turn towards a new leader who is capable of focusing on the challenges ahead, rather than sowing division through relitigating lost internal battles of the past. This is why Nancy Pelosi recently referred to Liz Cheney as her favorite Republican. With the move today, House Republican leadership can act as one as they fight for common sense, limited government principles.”
