House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pointedly declined an opportunity on Tuesday to say whether he believes Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3-ranking House Republican who has been a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump, was a "good fit" for the party's leadership.

Davenport, Florida (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pointedly declined an opportunity on Tuesday to say whether he believes Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3-ranking House Republican who has been a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump, was a "good fit" for the party's leadership.

Asked by Punchbowl News' Jake Sherman whether Cheney, the GOP conference chairwoman and the No. 3 House Republican, was still a "good fit" for the leadership team, McCarthy replied, "That's a question for the conference. "

His response is the latest in a persistent divide between the two House Republican leaders as Cheney has continued to speak out about the need for Republicans to move beyond Trump.

When asked on Monday who she believed the leader of the GOP is, Cheney named Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, and McCarthy -- not Trump.
