Rep. Elise Stefanik, the No. 3 House Republican, has joined House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy in endorsing Harriet Hageman, who is running in Wyoming to unseat GOP Rep. Liz Cheney. 

"House Republicans were ready for a change when I took over as [House Republican] Conference Chair, and it's resoundingly clear that Wyoming families are too," Stefanik said in her endorsement. 

The New York Rep. added that Cheney, a member of the House Democrat-led Jan. 6 commission, has "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," said Stefanik, who replaced Cheney in her GOP leadership post last year.

Hageman was endorsed by former President Trump last year after Cheney voted to impeach the former president over his alleged incitement of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

"I am honored and grateful to have the support of Rep. Elise Stefanik, who is an excellent representative for her own constituents and a fantastic chairwoman of the House Republican Conference. She is proof that it is possible to fight for your principles in Washington, D.C. while also staying true to what your constituents want you to do," said Hageman in response to the endorsement. 

"It is fitting that I am receiving the endorsement of the congresswoman who replaced Liz Cheney as chair of the Republican Conference because it exemplifies exactly how Cheney has abandoned her responsibilities."
