Chip Roy backs Elise Stefanik, says GOP must 'move forward' after conference chair loss

罗伊, R-Ariz。, was always an extreme longshot to win the conference chair position. He announced his intention to run for the third-ranking post in the House Republican Conference this week only after members had already ousted Rep. 莉兹·切尼, R-Wyo。, for her repeated condemnations of former 特朗普总统.

到那个时候, 斯特法尼克, R-N.Y。, was backed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif。, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La。, and perhaps most notably Trump himself.

I extend my sincere congratulations to my friend and colleague, 埃莉斯·斯特法尼克(Elise Stefanik),” Roy said in a statement. “As I said from the beginning, our goal was to provide an alternative with a proven record of standing up not for politicians — but for freedom, the Constitution, and the conservative principles Americans hold dear.
