DEVELOPING STORY: Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) will keep her job as Republican Conference Chair, after 145 members voted to keep her in the position and 61 voted to oust her in a secret ballot vote on Wednesday night.

Cheney faced strong opposition from some members of her party after voting to impeach former President Trump over the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

MSNBC reports that Cheney refused to apologize for her decision to vote to impeach former President Trump. She also adamantly refused to rescind her statement about the former president’s role in inciting the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Cheney is the third-ranking House Republican.
