Rep. Greene says a GOP challenge to McCarthy 'bad strategy'
"Do we want to see that challenge open the door to Nancy Pelosi handing the gavel to Liz Cheney?" Greene says
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.
