House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will support House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) to remain in her leadership post after the congresswoman voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, according to Punchbowl News.

The report comes as House Republicans are set to meet Wednesday regarding Cheney’s future as House Republican Conference chair.

More than half of the House Republican Conference has committed to vote to oust Cheney from her leadership role. One senior House Republican told Breitbart News that GOP lawmakers believe Cheney should step aside voluntarily to avoid additional embarrassment. Reps. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY) have been floated as possible replacements for the Wyoming Republican.

Meanwhile, Republican Parties in ten Wyoming counties have now censured Cheney over her impeachment vote.
