Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., wants a spot in the Republican leadership, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

According to the Journal, which cited an unnamed source, the elder daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney plans to run later this month for the House GOP conference chair post, the fourth-ranking leadership spot.

Cheney would be challenging Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., if Democrats win the House majority next Tuesday.

If the GOP retains control, McMorris Rodgers is expected to run for House GOP majority whip, likely challenging Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., who is now the House GOP chief deputy whip, the Journal reported.

Cheney's father also served as Republican Conference hair when he was a representative from Wyoming, CNN noted, adding other notable former chairs of the Republican Conference include former President Gerald Ford, 1996 Republican vice presidential nominee Jack Kemp, former House Speaker John Boehner and Vice President Mike Pence.
