After announcing his support for Rep. Elise Stefaniak in her bid to take over the position of GOP Caucus Chair from embattled Rep. Liz Cheney, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has now announced a date for the vote which will potentially strip Cheney of her position.
McCarthy sent out a letter on Monday announcing that the vote to oust Cheney will likely take place this Wednesday:
"Having heard from so many of you in recent days, it’s clear that we need to make a change. As such, you should anticipate a vote on recalling the Conference Chair this Wednesday.” pic.twitter.com/P0Euyl2wM3

In the letter, McCarthy talks about the need to be united as a party and not relitigate past conflicts but also emphasizing that now was the right time to make a change in leadership in order to move forward to victory in the upcoming 2022 midterms.
