GOP Conference deputy has complained about "coronation" of Stefanik

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) has questioned Stefanik's conservative credentials to his Republican colleagues and grumbled about the ease at which she has been boosted for the position, according to a report from Punchbowl News on Friday.

Johnson has reportedly been receiving calls from colleagues about Stefanik and the drama surrounding Cheney has unfolded. His office declined to comment on the record to the news outlet.
