(CNN)Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney's repeated rebuttals of former President Donald Trump's lies that the 2020 election was stolen from him has put her in a precarious position within the Republican Party.
Just three months after an overwhelmingly vote to keep Cheney in her leadership position as the No. 3 House Republican, some of her colleagues are warning that she could face another test.
Cheney has no intention of stepping aside as House Republican conference chair, two people familiar with the matter tell CNN.
A vote to oust Cheney from her leadership job seems all but certain and could happen as soon as May 12, according to several senior Republican members and aides.
Multiple sources told CNN on Tuesday that Stefanik has signaled interest in taking over as the GOP conference chair and running for the job if Cheney is ousted.
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, a Pennsylvania Republican, is whipping votes for Stefanik and believes the votes are there if Cheney is in fact voted out of her position, a source familiar told CNN on Tuesday evening.
