Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said on Monday that challenging House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy is a bad strategy. 

Greene was asked for her opinion of a potential challenge to McCarthy from a House Freedom Caucus member such as Arizona GOP Rep. Andy Biggs. 

"I actually think that's a bad strategy when we're looking at having a very razor-thin majority, with potentially 219 [seats], we're talking about one vote," she said on Real America's Voice. 

"The danger is this: Do we want to watch a challenge for Speaker of the House simply because the 'Never Kevin' movement, just like we've seen a 'Never Trump' movement — do we want to see that challenge open the door to Nancy Pelosi handing the gavel to Liz Cheney?" she added.
