Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) said he is undecided on whether he will vote to oust Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, according to Insider, as Republican leadership attempts to toss Omar from the panel.

Santos told Insider on Wednesday that he still does not know how he will vote on the measure to boot Omar from the Foreign Affairs panel. Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is set to hold a vote on the move in the coming weeks. Omar’s service on the committee has come under fire after past comments about Israel have drawn the ire of both Republicans and Democrats.

Santos’s indecision on the vote means Republican leadership may have a harder path to winning a resolution to get the Minnesota Democrat off the committee. With a slim majority, McCarthy can only afford to lose a few GOP votes. Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.) has said she will not support the move and Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) also said she is undecided. A small group of Democrats have not announced how they plan to vote.

McCarthy already ejected Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) from the House Intelligence Committee.
