Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) dominated fourth quarter fundraising, hauling in 3.2 million in the last quarter of 2019. This monster number even beats Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who raised 2.5 million in the same quarter.
Rep. Stefanik has stepped into the spotlight during the impeachment charade led by House Democrats. Stefanik unapologetically calls out the lies of Rep. Adam Schiff, during his baseless impeachment of President Trump, despite Schiff continually interrupting Stefanik, or refusing to recognize her at all. Stefanik even called out Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, for fabricating testimony from President Trump:
“You yourself, Mr. Chairman, have mischaracterized the call,” Rep. Stefanik said in November, of Schiff’s attempt at “parody.”
As Democrats continue to grasp at straws in an attempt to unseat President Trump, Rep. Stefanik fiercely condemns Rep. Schiff's political charade:
An outrageous abuse of power by Adam Schiff.— Elise Stefanik (@EliseStefanik) January 31, 2020
And an absolute waste of the country’s time and taxpayer dollars.
It is time to move on and get back to the People’s work.
Stefanik’s opponent is far-left progressive Tedra Cobb, who is painting Stefanik as a Trump-ally. NY-21 is still rated solid Republican by Cook Political Report and Inside Elections. Stefanik's massive fundraising haul in 2019's fourth quarter indicates that her constituents are behind her.
