Liz Cheney Might Stay But The Establishment GOP Won’t

On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Managing Editor Joshua Lawson and New York Correspondent David Marcus join Western Correspondent Tristan Justice to discuss what the vote to keep Rep. Liz Cheney on GOP House leadership signals and reflects for the future of the Republican Party.

“The Republican Party still has some soul-searching to do, and it’s not so clear-cut as some in the media would like to make it, like there’s this giant slit, this huge disunion,” Lawson said. “I think there’s still a lot left to be determined. … It shows that’s there’s still this indeterminant amount of stuff that has got to be sorted out in the near future.”

While the future of the GOP seems uncertain, Marcus said it’s clear there are certain people in the Republican Party who will not settle for the old, establishment ways again.

“Ultimately what’s happening in the GOP is not about Donald Trump. It’s about serious frustration with the chamber-of-commerce version of the establishment Republican Party that the expanding and more diverse Republican Party just isn’t on board with,” Marcus said.
