Trump just tapped rising GOP star Elise Stefanik to be the New York State chair for the Trump campaign in 2020.
This is a smart move as Elise is highly capable and very loyal. She also has a strong following in New York and people trust her.
She has an uphill battle in that liberal state, but don’t discount the high taxes and lousy quality of life to change people’s vote. And Elise is the person to make the case.
“I’m honored to have been chosen as a New York State chair for the Trump campaign in 2020,” she said Wednesday.
“President Trump’s agenda of creating jobs, strengthening our military, securing our borders, negotiating better trade deals and lowering crime rates has historic support in the 21st Congressional District and across Upstate New York.”
“I’m looking forward to working with his campaign to deliver another decisive victory in my district. President Trump’s record of results will win handily over far-left radical resistance in November,” she said.
From Fox News:
One of the most explosive moments of the impeachment hearings came on Nov. 15, 2019, when Ranking Member Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., yielded some of his time to Stefanik. But as she spoke, Schiff slammed down his gavel, arguing that it was not allowed under committee rules: “The gentlewoman will suspend.”
“What is the interruption for now?” she shot back.
What followed was a debate between Nunes and Schiff as to whether the Republican could offer his time to a fellow member of Congress, rather than minority counsel. Stefanik repeatedly tried to speak, only for Schiff to bang his gavel again.
“You’re gagging the young lady from New York?” Nunes laughed at one point.
“This is the fifth time you have interrupted a duly-elected member of Congress,” Stefanik told Schiff, who repeatedly told her she was “not recognized” to speak.
