REPORT: “Us Or Her”; Political Consultants Sour On Liz Cheney

It was reported earlier today by Breitbart that Republican political consultants are reportedly choosing between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Never Trump Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as congress members gear up for the midterms.

Jeff Miller, a prominent lobbyist in Washington who has close ties to McCarthy, is telling other Republican political consultants that they must choose between working with McCarthy or working with Cheney, according to the New York Times. In recent weeks, Miller has been giving off the message of “us-or-her.”

Breitbart went on to say that Miller’s messaging has already prompted one of Cheney’s fundraising firms, the Morning Group, to disassociate from her. The congresswoman had originally hired the Morning Group for help with raising a war chest against the onslaught of potential challengers and specifically one endorsed by former President Donald Trump. A source told the Times that the group informed her last month that it will be cutting ties.

Cheney, who was booted from her House Republican leadership position in May, could potentially cause problems for McCarthy in the future if she is reelected and the Republicans are in the majority. Cheney, who has been a source of controversy since breaking with her party to vote to impeach Trump, could continue to be a problem for McCarthy if he gains the speakership.

The Wyoming Republican has already vocalized her opinion of McCarthy, making it clear she does not support him, which comes after the Wyoming Republican broke ranks and agreed to sit on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 select committee, despite McCarthy saying no Republican would be joining it, a move that earned Cheney the name “Pelosi Republican.”

“She’s not just undermining Kevin but the whole G.O.P. conference,” Miller said of Cheney during an interview. “You’re either with Kevin, and the conference, or the person undermining them. You can’t serve two masters.”
