House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has endorsed Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) GOP challenger in Wyoming, striking a tough blow against the already-endangered incumbent.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has had a relatively unchallenged political career up to this point, but her participation on the Democrat-dominated Jan. 6 Committee and her comments regarding former President Donald Trump have alienated GOP voters and officials.

Though he has yet to give an endorsement for many upcoming races, Trump quickly endorsed attorney Harriet Hageman to replace Cheney in the one-district state of Wyoming.

On Thursday, McCarthy also endorsed Hageman over Cheney, indicating that the more established wing of the GOP has also grown frustrated with Cheney’s participation on the Jan. 6 Committee.

“The most successful Representatives in Congress focus on the needs of their constituents, and throughout her career, Harriet has championed America’s natural resources and helped the people of Wyoming reject burdensome and onerous government overreach,” McCarthy said in a statement.

“I look forward to welcoming Harriet to a Republican majority next Congress, where together, we will hold the Biden Administration accountable and deliver much-needed solutions for the American people,” he added.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), who has been an outspoken critic of the Jan. 6 commission, followed suit in giving her endorsement to Hageman.

“I’m proud to endorse Harriet Hageman in her race to unseat Liz Cheney,” Stefanik said in a press release. “House Republicans were ready for a change when I took over as Conference Chair, and it’s resoundingly clear that Wyoming families are too.

“Liz Cheney abandoned her constituents to become a Far-Left Pelosi puppet. Liz sadly belongs in an MSNBC or CNN news chair, not in Congress representing Wyoming—a state that voted for President Trump by over forty points.

“Harriet is a true America First patriot who will restore the people of Wyoming’s voice that has been long forgotten by Liz Cheney.”
