WASHINGTON – Amid division over the future of the Republican Party, GOP members of Minnesota's U.S. House delegation trod carefully after Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney was removed from her House leadership post.

Wednesday's decision came after Cheney continued to push back against former President Donald Trump's baseless claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

Shortly after the vote, Rep. Michelle Fischbach, a freshman GOP lawmaker representing western Minnesota, said in a statement that "our conference has lost faith in Congresswoman Cheney's ability to look to the future and advance our collective priorities."
