Meghan McCain leaving The View LATEST – Speculation host may be replaced by Candace Owens or Kellyanne Conway

MEGHAN McCain could be replaced on The View by Candace Owens, Megyn Kelly, or Kellyanne Conway, insiders have claimed.

The conservative talk show host announced in July that she was "done" with the show and clashing with her co-stars, and had four weeks left on the job.

Speculation is mounting as to who will replace her as ABC reportedly scrambles to find another conservative voice.

McCain's replacement will likely be a "Trump conservative" such as Kimberly Guilfoyle, Megyn Kelly or even Candace Owens, an insider told DailyMail.com.

"[Kimberly] would be great as she would literally prosecute the other members of the panel every day of the week," they said.

"One of our highest rated episodes ever was when she stopped by the show with Don Jr."
