House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke harshly about fellow GOP rapes on Tuesday. Liz Cheney said the No. 3 Republican in the House “has got real problems,” according to an audio recording reviewed by Axios.
The Republican leader said in off-air comments to “Fox and Friends” host Steve Doki, who was caught on a hot mic. “Well, someone just has to bring an offer, but I think maybe there will be.”
McCarthy expressed concern during a live interview about Cheney, who serves as the Speaker of the House Republican Conference, but did not propose it as an assessment about congressmen.
“I have heard from members about the ability to serve as conference chair to send messages,” McCarthy said. “We all need to work as one if we are able to win a majority [in the 2022 midterm elections]”
McCarthy and Cheney’s offices did not immediately respond to insiders’ requests for comment.
